Testimonials

“I'm doing some wood binding today, and I pulled out a few pieces of curly maple I've had for a while that I bought from you. It never ceases to amaze me how LMI, above all my other suppliers, just consistently gives me materials that never fail to surpass my expectations. No matter what any picture on your site looks like, whatever I get is always better. Really appreciate it. I know that you supply many other people far beyond my volume and talent, but I am definitely a customer for life!"

Aniline Dyes Water Soluble

DYESAnilineDyeFSTRWonAndyBuzzellguitar800These high-grade water soluble dyes work very well for coloring your own laminates or purflings where you want complete penetration. The best results are found on hard and close-grained woods, like Maple. Lacquer, varnish, or shellac may be applied over the stain once it is dry without fear of smears or smudges. Each ½ oz. container is enough to make 1-2 quarts, depending upon desired concentration.

MIXING/APPLICATION: Do not pour water over the powder, but gradually add the powder to hot (not boiling) water. It should dissolve in about fifteen minutes. (For use with making laminates or purflings where you want complete penetration, cook in a pressure cooker for at least twelve hours—longer is better.) It's suggested that the instrument be sponged with a weak solution of the mixed stain, allowed to dry, and then sanded. A wash coat of shellac or lacquer applied after the water stain has dried makes the wood fibers more stiff and brittle and easier to sand. The wash coat also helps to prevent cutting the stain off the edges and harder parts of the wood. 1/2 oz. wide mouth plastic container—enough for 1 to 2 quarts, depending upon desired concentration.

NOTE: These dyes are sold by weight. Some colors are heavier than others and so the amount in each container may vary.
