I’ve been doing some research into impregnating wood with some kind of resin and dye. What I want to do is thoroughly saturate a piece of wood with dye, the stabilising part of it is just a by-product. (Although a very welcome one!)
If you’ve seen my blog you know I’ve got a lot of maple… I want to turn a bunch of it into pen blanks. And as a lot of it has just amazing grain and figure… would make for some kickin’ interior colouring.
I’m getting a lot of varied information on the internet.. would love to hear directly from anybody who has done it.
I have a few vac pumps and can get another easily if necessary.. not sure what I need. Would ideally like to do more than one piece of wood at a time.
What dyes work best for this? Does it matter?
