I`m starting a Les Paul build and i'm trying to figure out how to dye the quilted top. I don't want it to look super gaudy just to show through a bit like the one in the picture below. does anyone have any tips for me? PS this is my first build.
Hi I'm new here and probably being a little ambitious on my first build (although I will have experienced advisers helping me). However, I'm looking to make a blue burst telecaster. I have seen build threads elsewhere, where fountain pen ink has been used as a dye under either tru-oil or a clear top coat. Some ink manufacturers have a good range of colours, such as these here: http://www.diamineinks.co.uk/listings.aspx?catid=67 I am thinking of using an ink dye on my book-matched flamed maple top, followed by a couple of clear coats and then some tinted burst coats followed by more clear top coats. Has anybody used ink for dyeing? Any pros & cons? If ink is unsuitable, what should I consider instead? The closest example I can find to what I'm planning to do is this Warmoth body. Regards, Norris
