I recently finished building a cherry blanket chest but I made a mistake in the finish process. I'm looking for some direction to correct my mistake. I first applied two coats of sanding sealer ( wax free shellac ), then I applied a coat of burnt umber glaze with glazing medium. After drying I decided to add a second coat of glaze to darken the color but after applying the second coat I got called away to do something else. By the time I returned the second coat of glaze had dried and I could not rub it out.
Can someone please let me know what my options are for correcting this problem ? Should I add a third coat of glaze , strip the finish down, or sand it down. I would greatly appreciate your help in this matter.
Try rubbing it out with 600 grit wet/dry paper and water or Mineral Spirit if no luck move to 500 or 400
