Some wood seal got removed on my desk. There is a noticible spot. Is there anyway to fix it without refinishing the whole thing?
- Tinted shellac: adding a metalic dye to a dewaxed shellac: Advantage, can be done in layers, fast drying. Finish can be blended and buffed. Once blended, an appropriate top coat to protect all.
- Stain or dye directly to the 'noticeable spot'. Over-finish with spray can of clear coat : Lacquer, shellac or polyurethane as appropriate.
- Stain markers (like a kids paint marker) are available in a multitude of wood tones. They can be blended on surface and removed with paint thinner as needed. They should be fixed with an over-finish as in step 2.
