Dye + Clear = Resulting look?

Recommended Posts


Today I stained the first guitar top ever. As the Dye was wet it looked great. After it was dry again it looks very different. If I apply a clear coat of polyurethane to the guitar, will it restore the look of the wet dye or will it look like the dried dye under the poly?

As soon as you apply some finish to the guitar the wet look will come back. It looks dull when dry but don't worry what you saw when wet is what yoiu will get.

Take a look at someof the dye process pics I took of one my last guitars and you can see how much the lacquer brings the dried dye to life (scroll down): #009 process
