Another nellie Style...

Post by sporty » Sat Feb 28, 2015 5:27 pm

This is a derby evolution body and His fenders. balsa fenders.


I tried some green dye and I wanted emerald green, but that's not what I got, I did not mix it right. and I ran into some problems. But so far, it's okay.

Its got weight in it already, but I may have to take some out, lol.

Sporty,

Was the wood dye you used a distilled water mix.. or an alcohol mix for fast drying..
and non-grain rasing?

I've used the trans tint brand dyes with abrasive pads like maroon mirlon on a few wood projects.
Never gave much thought to useing the wood dyes on Pwd cars.. I like how it looks.
