I have been working of a piece of Fir live edge and ran into an issue with blotchy whitewash bleeding through darker stain. I believe this is because of inconsistent white wash application and the dark stain I ended hating the color.
I stripped all the stain with citristrip and now I’m left with a yellowish tint on certain areas.
Would bleaching the wood and then going in with minwax gel stain on walnut give me the desired look I’m attempting (photo attached).
I have attached my stain fail as well.
