    How are you planning on applying it? As in spray can or do you have access to spray equipment?

    How Iíve done it in the past: Mix up your desired clear coat/binder and then add around 20% of white to it.

    I find it looks nicer if you pop the grain first but that might not be the look youíre going for

    If you were after Dingotone. They used to do a custom colour. not sure if they still do. Otherwise you could always order a Dingotone butterscotch. It comes with a white base coat, butterscotch colour and final coat. You make the butterscotch by mixing the white base coat and butterscotch colour. Technically you could just use the white base coat with no other stain.
