Client wants POP displays in those three colors. The pine is radiata. The R and B will be dye, so showing some grain will be fine.

Would white dye—if there is such a thing—be the same look as the pickling fad in the eighties?

Thanks for your input.

I use white paint cut 50%. Oil base gives a longer working time. Wipe on, wipe off.
