So im not asking you guys to tell me any secrets. I just wanted to know if i should mix water or viniger with the Rit dye? i have herd that water doesn't penetrate as well. if you guys can give me some pointers-that would be great! right know im using food dye and viniger and it works quit well but i would like to have stronger and better colors. like purple and black. thanks
Rockwell.

I've just started using vinegar and it's seeming to work well, I found liquid rit dye at a fabric store and I thought there was only the powder but the first couple plies I put in came out nicely

Telling you right now water works great with the right dye. Also the water/dye ratio plays a huge role so if you don't get it right the first time just try a different amount of dye or water. Same should go for vinegar.

Yup. Be patient and use plenty of dye.

Rit dye works but you have to leave it in the dye for about a week for it to get through the veneer all the way. Rit is very weak. One way you can test the power of a dye is to stick your finger in it a tiny bit and see if you can wash it off with water. Good dye won't come off right away.

Has anyone tried boiling the Rit and water dye solution.

I would think that if you boiled it first then put in the wood that it would penetrate the wood better.

There is NO need to do this.. I have some of the deepest colored ply's I've ever seen and I DONT BOIL THEM.

unnecessary

Go get some concentrated dye. Rit sucks.
