Aniline Dye To Tint Lacquer?


Recommended Posts

I have heard somewhere on the web that alcohol soluble aniline dyes can be mixed with lacquer thinner in order to tint the finish. Is that true? If yes, should I dissolve the dye in alcohol first, then mix it with thinner/lacquer?, or should I mix the dye directly with the thinner/lacquer?

I am re-finishing my home made LP guitar and I want to achieve something like a tabacco burst. I have some aniline dyes in variety of colors. I'd like to use them.
