Great and easy way to color glues for crafting ideas.

The liquid dyes will easily mix with each other to create numerous color options for the perfect DIY glue coloring projects. This one kit, will literally make pounds of colored glues.

Wood Dye, Wood Prep, and Popping Figured Wood Grain With The Keda Wood Dye Powder

Here is a detailed video on preparing wood for wood finishing. I tried to show a wood prep for maple wood, and a dying technique for “Popping The Grain” using a figured curly maple wood. The wood dye ratios were very concentrated in this video, and were mixed at the following dye stain ratios:

Black Wood Dye: 2 ounces warm water to 1/4th tsp of black dye powder

Blue Wood Dye: 4 Ounces rubbing alcohol (70% Isopropyl Alcohol) to 1/2 tsp of the Blue Dye Powder.

Wood was prepped with a progression sand utilizing wood specific sandpaper: 120 grit, 150 grit, 180, grit, used hot water to raise the grain (optional) let dry, then sanded with 220 grit (optional) prior to applying the wood dyes to the surface of the wood.

I really hope it helps out, and thank you for watching the video!
