Engraved Wood

Tim Castle asked 10 years ago

I have engraved a name into some Pine. I want to stain the inside of the letters one stain and the surface another. How do I keep the stain in the letters from oozing out into the adjoining wood?

Pre-seal with a stain conditioner to slow down penetration and give you sometime (a few seconds) to wipe up any mistakes, use an artist brush for the lettering and be careful with all staining.

You can also use gel stains to get more help with controlling where the stain goes.
