    Dyed Fretboard help

    I dyed my fretboard on my snowcloud black today. I've been polishing off the excess dye but it just seems to keep coming... Im OCD about keeping my hands clean so i need to find a way to stop it from coming off, any thoughts? can i seal it or something? I'm sure you know the answer Budd ^^

    What kind of dye did you use? I would wait a day or two or three to let the dye dry first and then buff the board. Or you can just sell me the Snow Cloud

    I'm not sure what dye i used as it was done around my mates but im guessing thats the problem as i did my PRS SE about 2months ago and there is still dye being buffed off now, its as if it doesn't set in at all.... Hah! no chance at selling the snowcloud

    I guess it just depends on how you apply the dye. I go on with light coats, let it absorb then wipe off the excess while it's still somewhat wet. I've had absolutely no problems staining Caparison boards but your mileage may vary.
