My original intent was to put three colors of dye on this hollow form – green followed by blue and then yellow. A funny thing happened a couple of days ago. Some folks dropped by my workshop studio and one of the ladies claimed that this piece was talking to her. I explained that I still had to put another coat of dye on it, but she insisted that the piece was happy the way it was and just wanted to be shiny. Since she was paying me cold hard cash I figured hey if this piece of wood is talking that loud to her so be it. I told her that it would be a couple of days before I would have all the finish on the piece and that she could come by then and pick it up. This piece has 5 coats of high gloss clear poly applied, wet sanded to 1500 grit between coats and then buffed out. The new owner is happy with it, I am a few bucks to the good and everyone is happy.
The inside of the hollow form was dyed with the blue dye.
