I have tried several versions of the magic dip, including using walnut wood stain (stinks, must do outside) The best one is as follows:
You will need:
Future Floor Finish
GW Flesh Wash Chestnut Ink
a resealable plastic container you don't mind ruining.
(I used the plastic container some take-out chinese won-ton soup came in)
I poured all of the GW Flesh Wash into the container and then using the empty GW bottle to measure added two parts water and two parts future. The future breaks up the surface tension allowing the ink to really get in the nooks and crannies. All Future and no water really makes the figure glossy and slick. All water and you will not get good coverage.
