Too much orange in maple doors7/31
Job was a rework from several years past.
Worth wood group color matched the existing doors, and failed, but was accepted.
Controll sample misplaced, by who no one knows
Job completed, deleivered and rejected for having too much orange. Can i add a blue dye to a cv topcoat to pull out some of the orange?
i did this with red once by adding some green and it worked out well, but have never used blue. anyone have some experience with this? or another option?
Blue is about the most light sensitive dye there is. Stick with green would be my advise. But, I've never been happy with adding color on top of a finished project.
i dont like doing this either, but it is what it is...
Its not a strong orange, if i scuff the majority of the top coat off, use maybe a light blue/green s61 dye, using thin coats. then reapply a thin clr top coat. i think itll be fine.
The three colors that make brown are red, yellow and black. Blue will kill orange but it may give it a weird look. If you have the room to go a little darker then use a real thin black, very thin. Thin black has a slight blue hue to it, not as harsh as full blown blue.
Agreed... an extremely watered down S61 Black Dye is going to be a bit on the bluish side.... Mohawks black tends to be purple... I would tread very very lightly if you mix a very weak amount of the dye in a carrier like a very reduced/retarded CV and shade/tone them very evenly. If you mess it up you will have weird shade lines around your inside edges. My suggestions would be create control samples to match what they have and then use that to create your color shift before you even attempt it on the real deal....I wouldn't get real aggressive with the scuff sanding either... Pray that your C.V. your laying down over the top doesn't wrinkle from the solvent being too hot. the first place you'll see failure is at edges/corners.. Risky business and could have a real mess on your hands.... bid accordingly and expect the worst if your going behind someone else's shoddy work... Personally I'd pass..
In my experiences, never add dye to a top coat of CV. Back it up, spray a light coat of CV sealer, then mix dye into some top coat to give it bite, then clear it with CV top coat
