Ron Jolly Posted September 16, 2005 Report Share Posted September 16, 2005 I am currently building a sharkfin v (RR style). The body is ash joined along the centre with the grain following the V (converging at the neck). I want to finish it in a rich purple, enhance the grain and colored darker at the edges. Being ash it is going to require grain filling and sanding sealer. Can I use a water based stain to get the desired color effect or does it require alcohol based ? and can anyone advise on the start to finish sequence of operation. Being in the UK, the suppliers of alcohol based dyes does seem a bit limited The body at present is raw finished sanded. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
