What’s your favorite source for aniline dyes?
I have done small projects with Lincoln shoe dye (black) with great success, but I’m uncertain if buying a larger quantity + shipping with be any better than lining up several bottles of the stuff, which I can buy locally, retail.
My materials is cherry and alder, and my goal is something that shows grain close up, but from the second row on back, appears black.
Topcoat will be WB poly or lacquer.
Thanks for the benefit of your experience.
