    I'd like to have an oil dye finish on a swamp ash body, just like the Warwick Corvettes.

    How do I do it?

    Thanks. There is a Woodcraft store in the area. :hyper:

    They carry both TransTint and TransFast dyes.
    What's the difference?

    I found a link on "aniline" dyes at Reranch. TransFast dyes are "aniline" dyes.

    :confused:

    one is liquid and the other powder...

    Transtint is said to be easier to work with... at least by my research for a project I'm planning (similar finish to your link but a guitar and mahogany).
