My Ric bass build: Thinking about the finish options within my reach.....

I want it black. I'd like to dye the maple cap really dark blue - black then put a few coats of Rusins Plastic Coating over it to a high gloss, maybe get a tiny sniff of the grain underneath.


Can you dye the Rustins Plastic Coating? then just go for a deep opaque blue-black painted straight on and buffed to a shine? Would that give a better finish?

Don't laugh: anyone ever used Quink black ink as a wood dye? :o
