zaynexpetty posted a topic in Dyes, Antiques, Stains, Glues, Waxes, Finishes and Conditioners.I have searched the forums but havent found any good answers. I like oil dye, as I haven't had any problems with it, and I havent tried any water/alcohol based dyes yet. I use cut resolene as a finish, and I heard people have had issues with water/alcohol based dyes coming off when using it. Anyways, I would like to create my own custom colors of dye, whether that requires making dyes from scratch or mixing two existing dyes. I am looking to make colors like indigo/navy, maroon/dark red, and dark green. What is the best way to achieve this? I use feibings pro oil dye now, but I am completely open to suggestions. Thanks Zayne
NicoleAlaine posted a topic in Dyes, Antiques, Stains, Glues, Waxes, Finishes and Conditioners.I have been using baby food jars for storing batches of mixed dyes but the lids do not tighten well and I have evaporation and storage issues. I usually only mix small batches but if I had a more reliable bottle I might mix more. How do you store your dyes?
Schpacko posted a topic in Dyes, Antiques, Stains, Glues, Waxes, Finishes and Conditioners.Hi guys I am using the professional oil dyes from Fiebing. I like them, but i am also a little bit bored of the colours, so i decided to experiment with mixing some of the colours, but it seems like i am not very talented at it Two Recipes that "kinda" worked were 3 parts light brown 1 parts green --> olive green 3 parts light brown 1 part mahagony --> a nice, reddish brown I would love to get a recipe for some sort of grey, but every other recipe is fine as well. Please do note which kind of dye you are using (manufacturer, name, etc) Thanks in advance Cheers Schpacko
