I usually dilute the food coloring in water first. If I were to paint it on instead, should I dilute it also or use it straight from the bottle?
I do also have an undyed cedar 2x4 my hubby cut in 6" sections (with the hacksaw) that my U2 loves to splinter.
But he (Popeye) also likes the smaller wood pieces such as beads and spools that he can remove from a conglomerate toy, hold in his talon, destroy, then move on to the next piece
. I don't have to color them. I just like to do it, but won't if it's bad for him.
