low end fuzz Posted December 27, 2008 Report Share Posted December 27, 2008 so soon i'll be inlaying a piece of lacewood into alder; id really like to give the l.w. some red to it; but with out runnong all over the alder; my plan is to soak the l.w. prior to gluing in (but after shaping) drying ;gluing in ,and then sanding flush; my plan is to use water based analine dyes; because thats what i have, i also have stains but i would almost assume the dye would go deeper; could be wrong, gonna try both! is there any impregnating technigues i can use to penetrate the wood so it gets past the layers that will be sanded away? i don't have acsess to any crazy vacuum pumps or anything; and i would rather not have any colour than send it away or use acrylic impregnated wood, btw; thank you much grant Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
