This is NOT, I repeat NOT a problem for me; just curiosity: I brushed on
some oil modified Bonakemi DriFast stain onto filled-pore red oak. I
wiped it off after a couple of minutes and proceeded to the next piece.
I glanced back at the first item I wiped off and there were a few tiny
bubbles of stain showing. I wiped them off and then a minute or so
later, a few more bubbles appeared. This isn't a big deal, doesn't
cause any problems, but I don't understand why the stain bubbles up out
of the wood after a few minutes. After the 3rd wiping it remained clear
Just wondering what is the process by which wiped-off stain re-appears?
Capillary action? bad karma? :)
Seriously, though, can anyone 'splain this?
