JohnJohn Posted May 2, 2004 Report Share Posted May 2, 2004 A while ago Litchfield custom posted about a way to make dyes,(good info too-was that ever pinned?),and the topic came up about using black food colouring. I wrote about a black food colouring that I had found by Wilton Enterprises. DO NOT USE IT. I just finished drying,(air) some scrap maple I had soaking in it for ebonizing,the dye turned the wood a blue colour,(kinda cool looking really). The liquid looked as black as black can be.Maybe it oxidized in the air or maybe it needs a stabalizer added to it for long term.Whatever the case do not use it for transparent black dyes. I truly apologize for posting any info about this without doing all of the background first. John Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
