    -"Now who would've thought of that"... Thanks for sharing - just excellent application of Occam's Razor.
    If not needed- take it away - could apparently be applied to the shellac/ alcohol as well!

    How does the pure stain (compared to the mix) stick when heat builds up?
    -Which one is easiest to clean off?

    I like the idea of on the spot preparation, resistance to heat is logical detail [as when first passes of a tool bit to scribed lines], could not then it atomize and spray?
    That makes DIY layout fluid 100%.
    Sincerely,
