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?
