I have some beautiful Tiger Maple that I would like to accentuate the figure of -- see BSR5GN on this site to see what I'm after http://www.kensmithbasses.com/woodpages/tigermaple (e).html
I have purchased Honey Amber, Golden Brown and Mission Brown TransTint dyes. I have mixed these dyes at ~ 1 tsp/10oz of water. All are way too dark when applied for the effect I want. I would appreciate some tips on how to get the light colored finish with the highlights depicted in the above referenced site.
Is it a matter of further diluting the dye, sanding most of it off ????
Some guidance would be appreciated
