Z-Poxy and color

Your videos are great and often just in time.  I caught the one on grain filling and your use of the Z- Poxy.  Now I have some of my own, but before I use it would like to know if this will still allow me to  wipe on alcohol based aniline dye over the filled wood ?  ...or do I have to spray with the dye in the clear ?  I have a pile of 5A quilt maple that I really want to do the black thing, sand off, then go over with the yellow or amber, etc. before I burst the edges.  Will the Z-poxy block this plan ?   Tell me your secrets, oh great one. The veneer vacuum is on its way and life is so short !  ;)

Once applied, the Z-poxy is essentially a thin veneer, so you'll need to spray over it with the dye in your clear. That said, keep in mind that you don't need to grain fill maple; I'm reading your question with the thought that you plan to put Z-Poxy over your maple top. There's no need for that; maple's grain is tight and not porous like Ash, Mahogany, Walnut, etc. 

 

 

Pore filling Walnut?

I've recently embarked on my own guitar project and all is going well so far, however I'm a little confused about the whole grain filling and clear coat process.
I have applied a Walnut veneer to the top of the body, but does this now need to be filled?

Thanks

 Yep. Walnut has open pores in the grain, much like mahogany (and ash, and Spanish cedar). There are tons of things you can use for pore filling, but I’m a fan of Z-Poxy resin. You can get it here.
