When color filling wood, I've had some trouble with the paint actually following or bleeding, even when using wax first. Could I use a poly spray first to seal this wood? And if I did use a poly spray, would I need to let the plaque sit overnight?

Answer

Make sure you are not engraving too deep. Also, make sure you are using a color-fill product designed for wood. If you are using an acrylic-based fill material, use an acrylic-based sealer, not a polyurethane-based product.
