When completely dry I sanded the edges with fine sandpaper. Since this piece was stained before, I just sanded to let the stain show thru.
This process also works with layers of color like in this tea box. You can see stained wood and a dark blue under the red.
This crayon box has a layer of dark green as an undercoat.
