    i used the latex stain method..the stain color was "eldorado" and when i opened it up it was pretty dang orangy brown, so i went back to my paint store and asked them to redden it up a bit. the guy did add quite a bit of whatever it is they use to change the color so that it was closer to red, but im still not happy with it. i think im gonna try to just get the RIT dye in red and stain it over my current dye job? or im wondering if i should go back to the paint store and ask them to redden it up even more...hmmm

    Thats pretty correct, bruv. It needs to be a hair darker, but you could prolly fix that by either dipping it again, or misting it with black.
