I bet if you used a dark amber for the sanded back base, it would have looked more realistic.
Maybe you can do a '59 les paul after Jimmy page's #1. I'm about to tackle it... flamed top bismark brown over lemon yellow base but after seeing this I'm thinking 'medium brown' over yellow.. as there is no red in the above mentioned guitar
Couldn’t you take some black printer ink mix some water and put that down?
What do you think about using a Purple base with some Light Blue or a Light Rose dye? This angelus Dyes are amazing!!
Thanks for these videos. I just got a DIY guitar kit from Musoo to work on over the winter. Thanks to your videos I got some Angelus dyes, but I'm worried on working on a veneered top. I think that after trying on scrap, I may just apply it directly after squeezing most moisture from the rag, without sanding back. I´m going to attempt a tobacco or desert sunburst, so any mistake will hopefully be covered in black.
Also, I've read your advice for years in Projectguitar. Helpful as always!
Would it be possible to create Seafoam green / Surf green with Angelus dyes? How could I achieve this? What colours would I need? Thank you very much :)
Nice Test! The Red looked so much better! Just want to ask, which of the color options does make the guitar top move more? In my small tests, it was possible to "kill" the 3D effect of the flame maple with a black undercoat. So I take a darker base color, then sand back und than i use the same color but a lighter variant for getting contrast and to preserve the moving of the flame.
Thanks so much for doing this!! I think my biggest takeaway from this was actually the black stain you're using. I've been frustrated by how every black stain I've tried seems to be more of a dark purplish kind of color, but this is totally black looking!
I have a question that maybe you have tried or would just know from your experience. Could you Dye with lets say Purple, and sand it back to fill the grain, and then say use that green you used in this video over top of it? Would the purple actually look purple or would it just be muddy? Not gonna lie, I am looking for an Incredible Hulk color scheme (2 favorite colors). Any insight is greatly appreciated.
You need to reach out to Angelus and set up a Big D 12 bottle guitar kit with your recommended colors. By the looks of the Dye review pictures you are driving business to them that is for sure. Thanks for the content.
Very cool... that orange on black looks literally like tiger stripes.
This is just like the yoga thing where they meditate red - orange - yellow - green - blue, meditate up there spine on those colors. Weird thought, just sorry about being a oddball.
I've had to watch this a few times. Really hard to Choose.. They would all look Great on a Guitar depending on the look Your going for ?? I do Really like The Blue , Green , Red and Brown on Black. Have You thought of doing a " Maple Burst " like the Leaves are turning colors in the Fall ??
Would love to see you recreate PRS River Blue
How about using the black stain / sand back technique, but with the color stain, and then a light coat of colored stain over it for the burst effect? I'll have to give it a try. I really like what you did making the "burst" pattern by sanding back the dark stained areas, I am definitely stealing that trick!
great video. You mentioned the shirt was washed 50 times. Is that to imply it's soft?
Can you also do demo with different base colors other than black and brown underneath? It would be interesting to experiment with light colors as a base, as well s different shades of the same colors. I've never painted wood, but I have gotten interesting results when using a variety of base color paints on canvas, paper, clay, and other mediums.
For the examples without the base colors would be good for painting different subjects on top because the figuring isn't as visible and won't blur out the painting. Have you ever painted, drawn, or used anything else to make abstract designs, murals, or other interesting subjects? You don't have to be Picsso or Van Gogh to paint something cool on a guitar! You could also add some neat textures. Lots of people use glitter, but how about other scraps of wood carved into cool shapes? Broken glass pieces? Using natural sponges, lace, wool, and other textures instead of your tag to paint texture over or under the main guitar color? I'd love to see you experiment with stuff like that. I've only found you in the last year, so I'm sure if you have ever done stuff like this TASTEFULLY, NOT GAUDILY, lol. My mom was a textile designer, painted wedding certificates, taught arts and crafts classes as a consultant, made custom paintings for adults/kids, etc. I have also taught crafting and jewelry making (particularly with glass and metal beading techniques), so I'm curious how borrowing from other art areas could be applied to your staining expertise. Wood burning designs and then staining on top could be really awesome. Just some food for thought to toss oitt there for you and others. I have never bud a guitar, but I hope to try -- and I'd love to bring my artistic side once I do!
Anyway, great video. It's very helpful to see how one stain or a lack thereof can affect the main body color.
Have you ever tried to dye a zebrano wood top ?
can one use the same technic than the one used here on a brighter wood ?
Derek thanks so much for taking the time to make this video, nice comparison! - Cheers from Canada
