You will probably find that the dye mixed with alcohol put the shellac back into solution, and made everything mix together. Best bet is to remove it all with alcohol, wiping until back to bare wood.

If you use shellac as a sealer, then spray the color mixed with nitro, until your liking, then clear coats

Lon that makes sense. When I spray the color should I mix the dye as I did previously? (using denatured alcohol as a thinner) Also should I mix the nitro with a 1:1 ratio?

Can't thank you enough for the insight. Very Happy
