    dye for wood can be get in hardware store, like "nut brew" witch make a dark stain to the wood
     

  3. Like ahlver said you can find it in just about any hardware store, it is usually called stain not dye and comes in many different shades/tones. Though you can use ink to color/stain your wood as well.

    And if you want to go with an Eco friendly, and cheap too, you can make a really strong tea or coffee. Or rust steel in water. These aren't as opaque as Joergs.

    Hi,<br>if anyone want to make slingshots in a colour like ebony...<br>... in Germany we had a trick in former times.<br><br>Take pearwood because of its very fine woodfibres.<br>Paint it with sulphuric acid ( 1:20 water).<br>Heat it up to 60-90°C.<br>The wood will be black now.<br>To neutralise the wood take soda and water.<br><br>Zwillie
