I don't know what these are called -they're like dye tubes, but with a closed end and used for Duke's Dye Version, for example. Anyone know what these are called, where to buy them, or have a tip on a good metal cannister to paint and sand for one? I'm looking for an even larger one than I have - to fit about 4 18" silks.

Thanks.

The original duke's dye version was a tomatoe paste cane. Use plastic pipe, close one end, cover with athletic training tape and paint.

If you want to invest in a brass gimmick, I can make it up. Give the size and what you need and we can go from there.

I think I´ll go the first way you suggested.
