Its a little more turquoise than I wanted... but a keeper. The dye went on BLUE but as it continued to migrate into the wood, it separated and you really have this blue and turquoise effect. Similarly, if you put a drop on a paper towel, it separates and you get a blue, turquoise and very green "ring" of dye. I've been told this is the nature of metallic dyes.
The RIT dye... in faded jeans color... might just be the ticket for Vic's tele. Got months to try it out, so no rush, other items to finish in the meantime too.
