I sealed some small reliefs I carved from bass wood with 100% tung oil and they look blotchy and the grain is distractingly accentuated. Does anyone know if I can either somehow remove the oil or at least put something over it to make the wood coloring more uniform. I sealed the others in the series with matte acrylic, and they look much better -- not too plastic-y. I will not mind if I cannot make these tung oil ones as pale as the others; I just hope to make them more even in color so the carving is not overwhelmed.
Thanks for any advice.
