« Part 19: Water around the Lands Part 20 of End Grain Floor series Part 21: Sea Gulls »

This should be the final set on the Sea Monster until final sanding and finishing!

I received the Transtint Black Dye, a brand of dye I am very familiar with and highly recommend! So I started laying the night!

Adding the Night!

Transtint Black

I finished the sky and moved on to the water!

More Water

Once I finished the dying I went back and filled in some lines that I had either forgotten or had found air bubbles in the Inlace.

White Repairs

Overall, I am very happy with the way it has turned out! I will need to apply dye at least one more time after finish sanding and before applying the finish! I did not want to finish more of the picture as I wanted your imagination to fill in the rest of it!:)

Close Up

Next to come is the Sea Gulls…So…More to Follow:)

Nice work on the dyeing Nate. I’ve done somewhat the same thing in veneer and know the challenges it presents. I think you will be able to sand deeper without removing the dye because you’re working on end grain.

Great effect on the waves. Your talent is obvious.

Thank you very much Paul, you are very encouraging. I have noticed that the dye is not as strong or pronounce after sanding so I will put on final coat of dye on before finishing to instill that deep color where I want it.

Your Friend,

Nate
