Liberon Water Based Dyes

I was wondering whether anyone has any experince with these dyes as the are quite cheap.
I am refering to these
They are like 5 pounds a pot on ebay and apart from the reranch dyes which costs a ton to ship over here i havnt found anything else.

I would go all out and buy thenm but they are acrylic baised and i was wondering has anyone ever used them and shot a nitrocellulose finish over them.
I emailed them to check if it was okay to be used in conjunction with a nitro clear and they said they havnt tested it out.

Or these from LMI (http://www.lmii.com/CartTwo/thirdproducts.asp?CategoryName=Dyes&NameProdHeader=Aniline+Dyes+Water+Soluble) that are only $4.24 which is approx 2.60. Perfectly formulated for finishing guitars and suitable to go under any type of finish. I can't remember the exact shipping cost when I bought some last month but it wasn't that expensive.

Thank you so much thats fantastic !
And they worked with nitrocellulose?

I've only got the nitrocellulose sanding sealer on so far, but working fine at the moment. I'm starting with the gloss lacquer tomorrow. I chose these dyes because they are pretty inert and will work under almost any finish.

Here's mine so far.
