Every CAB Acrylic I have ever seen is a solvent based product. What is the brand/type of CAB you are using?? I might can look it up........
Either way, you can use any Universal dye product to tint the CAB acrylic. Trans tint comes to mind for example.
It's Sherwin Williams Sher-wood. I'm pretty sure it's solvent based but I just wanted to check.
The dye stain that I'm planning to use should be fine to use with it; it's more the black pigment that I'm concerned about. It's for solvent-based finishes so I think it'll be fine but I'm not 100% certain. The pigment that I'm using is Stewart MacDonald ColorTone Liquid Pigment for Lacquer
I'm also reconsidering using a polyurethane, specifically some of the Target Coatings Poly products.
Emtech SuperClear 9000 Waterborne Polyurethane
Emtech EM6600 Raven Black Lacquer
I like these because I can get the black premixed but I haven't used waterborne finishes before so it might take some practice. I think I can use the dye that I have as a toner for the clear poly and then use the same clear for the topcoat and use the black lacquer for all my blacks. I was planning on using the clear by itself as a sealer instead of their sanding sealer, any issue with that? It sounds like it is self-sealing.
My only concern is that the black is a satin sheen and I'm looking for a nice glossy finish but I'm assuming that the gloss clear over the satin black will end up with the gloss that I'm looking for, is that true?
The polyurethane also has the added benefit that it's easier to get. :)
