    This question may be one you’ve had.

    ” what am I doing wrong with the gel stain. I want to put it on the plate but do not like my outcome. Do others have this same problem?”

    My reply:

    How nice to see your recent knot carving. It’s a challenging pattern so cut yourself some slack 🙂
    First, gel stain will accentuate any chatter marks and oops cuts.
    When I look at your stain, it needs another coat (or two) to even out the color. Adding more gel stain on the white spots will make it look a lot better.
    Take your time and don’t over-brush and pull out the stain.

    Here’s the updated carving after 2 more coats of gel stain.

    Wow!!! What a difference.
