Default White Alumilite Dye w/ Cactus Juice ???

I didn't want to make an experimental mess if someone has already tried this. Simply, has anyone used the white alumilite dye with cactus juice ??
And what were the results ??

Brad

Yeah...Ive used most the standard colors. Just didn't know what the white would do...lighten the wood, make white swirlies ?? Just couldn't wrap my head around it. May just have to try a little and see what happens.

Thanks,
Brad

White is most likely not going to do anything to the inside of the wood. It may make the outside white. The white dye is a pigment rather than a dye. Pigments are particles of the colorant and most likely will be too big to make it into the wood. The other colors are 100% liquid.
