I think I know my answer but want to throw it out there. I have a run-in conversion varnish Chemcraft 24. I want to knock down the run without burning into the stain. I am looking at the obvious – should I re-sand and stain? This is on a euro style mantel already in the field, meaning a flat 4" wide face with no profile.
From contributor S:
Before I reached for the sandpaper, I'd try scraping off the worst of the run with a razor blade. You're less likely to cut into the stain layer that way. Then, lightly scuff the surface and re-spray.
