Danger in Wetsanding?

George Van in WI
>While wetsanding with 3M WetorDry 400 grit I notice the finish I am using darkening. I am wetsanding cherry at this time. If this were maple would I be staining the maple black? I would rather learn on others experience than wreck a maple bowl to find out. I assume wet sanding using the finish is a common procedure? I am not letting the finish get gummy or putting excessive pressure against the bowl. I am sanding off the lathe.
