In the former system ofewood ?nishing by var- . desirable features of water soluble‘stains how

The varnish coats which were then ap

present in the top coats, and the dye remained

series of solvents came into use,.including_alco

old type of stains was found to result in some of

The evaporation rates of the various solvents
