  • Alcohol stains

    I have always been curious about alcohol based stains, so I ordered a few colors. red,blue, and two different greens. Boy are they intense and are very easily thinned to lighten the colors.
    I wanted them primarily for wood turnings. They penetrate very nicely. I have payed a bit on a few scrolled items with mixed results. The ribbon ornaments need to be very smooth or the colors get a bit blotchy. I will post some pictures when I get some.

    Anyone use them?

      While I have not used it I have heard of other wood workers mixing powered RIT dye with alcohol (DNA) with good results.
