I was told that if I use a water based urethane on my curly maple pieces that also have some dark wood glued next to it, that the curly maple will not darken and remain very white. I tried this with another product and it worked fine. My question is, if I use this High Performance Water based product, by General Finishes, can I then use a Arm-R-Seal topcoat over this? I use Arm-R-Seal oil and urethane or oil top coats all the time, but they will yellow the maple just a bit.

Can I use this over epoxy resin? The only parts that have it are the knot holes and such I have filled, some are large some are small. I was suggested to use a non wax shellac but I can't get that here. So looking for a substitute.
