Dyeing Ash Body

Post by Jayroc1 » December 14th, 2017, 9:29 am

What are the steps to filling and dying an Ash guitar body?

I'm looking to use Timbermate to ecentuate the grain and then using Keda red dye to make it pop. Do i just seal it with spray lacquer and sand in between coats to get a smooth finish?

Any tips are appreciated!

Yes, it needs sealer coats, after the Keda stain. Usually wet sanding, many coats, but follow the instructions on the sealer label. Keda should be the one to recommend a sealer.https://www.kedadyeinc.com/application/
