I am finishing my Les Paul guitar. I want to stain the back , mahogany, a purple color and highlight the pores with a yellow tinted pore filler material. Does anyone have any experience on this? I assume I will first stain the back with a water based stain, Transtint. Would alcohol be better? Then seal it with some type of sealer. Any ideas on the type of sealer? Then fill the pores with a yellow tinted pore filler. Any ideas on the type of pore filler? I will obviously start on a piece of scrap , but any advice would help me from reinventing the wheel if anyone has any experience with this type of finish.
