Only one problem with this idea for color checking. The dowel rod is natural wood colored. It will not show what color the threads will become after epoxy. If you want to know what color your wraps will be on the color rod you're building, use the oil or water trick.

The wrapping on the dowel is EXCELLENT for practicing your wraps on before you turn to the new blank.
