Would it be alright to use a vibrant color like purple or kelly green for pipe staining?

Thanks,

It's your pipe, make it to suit your tastes & likes, when all is said and done if YOU like it's perfect.

Ocelot55, fine looking pipes you have there. Never saw pipes with that color stain before, quite attractive.

I did one in BLUE not long ago, my next one I'm going to try a bright red.
Hey, nothing wrong with browns but, a little color never hurt either. Here's my blue one and a Chacom in marble, try doing that one.

Firstly: Peterson has used green on several lines in the past...and had significant issues with it 'yellowing' over time. Me? I love the concept (the forest thing...green being a natural mate to the brown woods) and the visual look of a green pipe. But I don't know if anyone using Feibing's or Lincoln or whatever kind of leather dye has had the same sort of thing happen (the fading, not me loving it). 

Secondly: We've all seen two and three tone pipes before and they can look amazing...on both smooth and rusticated surfaces. I buy wood for knife handles and there are many more combos available in that genre of craft. Check out this page from Burl Dogs, a really fine vendor of exotic woods, esp. Burls from Oz. The link takes you to his page of 'stabilized' wood which is dyed or 'double dyed' in the stabilizing process, which involves it being infused with acrylic resin under pressure. If any of y'all have thought of making tampers, look up what he offers for pen blanks. 

http://www.burlsource.com/burls-knife-blanks-stabilized.html

I'll just add that there are many ideas among his pieces that would translate well to a strummel. Also, these would make some fine shank extensions, I think. And finally I'll note that those stabilized woods are just about the nicest materials to work with that I've ever found.

That is something isn't it. As you probably know it's not stain or dye but paint but, I thought I'd just toss it into the mix.
