Hey all! I'm looking for advice on a problem I've been having for awhile. Whether I use black dye (water or oil based), antiquing, edge coat, or whatever, my black doesn't stay black. When I put a top protective coat on (resolene, super shene, satin shene, etc), the black wipes off leaving brown behind. On this specific piece I tried one technique that didn't work and subsequently tried a second one that hasn't failed me too badly in the past. Well, this time it did fail. All my attempts (including my last one of over-dyeing the entire project) went bust. I personally like the rustic look I wound up with, but it's not what my customer ordered. So, two questions: 1. How do you keep your black vibrantly black? What products or techniques work for you? 2. Any ideas on how to fix this specific piece? Thanks, Miranda
