User01 Posted December 31, 2008 Report Share Posted December 31, 2008 I bought a replacement ibanez body and it is made out of mahogany. Its all sanded and feels as smooth as silk. I want it dyed blood red with a non-gloss finish (similar to an rga), however i was just wondering whether its simple enough for me to do it myself. here are the things i would like to know before going ahead: 1) what do i have to do to the smooth, already sanded body in preparation for dyeing? do i have to apply any chemicals or fillers? 2) once the dye has been applied, what needs to go on afterwards? i dont want it glossy, so im guessing i dont need a poly clear coat. can i leave it as it is once it has been dyed, or will i have to use some kind of protective agent on top of the dye? Thanks alot User01 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
