Alright ladies, and the rest of you less refined members of humanity.
I bought some J.E. Moser water soluble wood dyes, except there is a problem….
The website for them says they make 1/2 gallon, with water, per ounce of powder. The bottle says each bottle makes 1 gallon per ounce..
How do I deal with this? I have a dozen spankin’ new, unused, pint Mason Jars that my wife bought for me, probably so I wouldn’t use the good ones.
I have no idea how much tint dye I need to do a single guitar. I’m not sure even of the color I want, although a dark brown mahogany using the flame maple veneer top sounds really cool.
Anyway, I need some direction on where to go with this.
I’ll post color numbers and sample swatches later, after after I get some of these mixing, blending and volume problems taken care of.
EDIT: Added pictures.
These are pictures of the five colors of dye I have.
I am testing different colors and will add another color in subsequent tests.
