Re: Minwax #33 Green Bayou for BSB project
I don't think you want to use minwax stains on a guitar. I've tried it before and they look terrible. The pigment size is a LOT larger than it is with a dye. The pigment appears like small dots (when you look closely) as compared to a smooth uniform color like the dyes.
Go to a local leather repair shop. They can get dye's in many colors.....you can also safely mix the dyes to make your own custom colors.
I use Fiebing's liquid dyes myself.
