    So I'm outside with my water based dyes rubbing some amber and brown into a Tele like diy kit to get a poor man's burst going, and I start to notice it's getting a bit hard in places, uneven and a little glossy.... wtf?

    I smell the dyes.... I smell nothing. I look in the little dollar store plastic cups... and they've started getting little strands of some kind of finish i know i never put in there...

    It took me like 10 minutes to figure it out.... I'd never done my dyes outside in the winter...... it was ice...... Lol........

    I'd been slowly building up a nice polished layer of glossy water... haha..... where's the dunce cap?
