I had an inkjet printer die a while back and still have many new refill cartridges that I haven’t been able to throw away. It occurs to me that this ink might be good as a wood dye. One could mix up most any color from what I have. I haven’t tried it yet. Has anyone else done it? Success? Any reasons why it won’t work? How about color fastness?

I will, but it will be a while as I am in the midst of a big project at the moment. That’s why I asked if someone else has already tried it.

I’ll bet if you stabilized with cactus juice it would work. At least worth a try.
