Blank Dyeing

The Ken Preston Logo

   

If there is a dye or a dye mix that you are interested in, any rod can be made almost any color. This is a difficult and labor intensive process that involves sanding the blank (scuffing for adhesion), and then applying a very thin and very flammable two-part epoxy resin, dye, and plasticizer. This is dangerous work.

My charge for this process is $25 per hour, plus the appropriate amount for reattaching the guides, which must first be removed to ensure proper color match and finish depth.

For more details on how a blank's color can be changed, please check out the Changing Colors section of the Workshop.
