minwax wood finish stain used over acrylic latex paint for wood graining technique
I made an entertainment center out of mdf plywood and raw trim. I wanted it to be stained, but I could not stain the mdf only the raw trim I used for deocration. So, I researched a little and discovered the wood graining technique. I decided to use this on the mdf wood, but I think I have made some mistakes.............
1st- painted the mdf with acyrlic latex semi-gloss.
2nd- when paint was dry I used minwax wood finish stain generously
3rd- used the wood graining tool and brushed lightly through the created graining to soften the look
4th- waited 14 hrs (stain still had not dried) added a very thin coat of stain and brushed off then used wood graining tool again
It doesn't look bad at this point. I think with an additional coat of stain it will give me the look I am wanting, but I am concerned the stain will not dry at all...ever. Should I start over or what??????
Any help would be GREATLY apprciated
