How do you stop stain from bleeding into wood under taped areas.
I was building an electric buitar with a curly maple top, laminated to a piece of mohogany. I wanted to the top to be stained, and the mahogany to be natural. I used green painter's tape to mask off the mahogany, but the stain bled through it. I tried it another way -- masking of the curly maple and staining the mahogany (on a different guitar) and I got the same bleed through.
Any suggestions about how to get a perfectly clean edge, with now stain buildup, bleeding or clumpy spots of stain?
