I tried to dye this like the famous Trifern, except mine was spinning, I didn’t know you put it on while it was still. Anyway I got most of the analine dye on me, not the wood, it seemed to fly off as soon as I sprayed it on, so there wasn’t much color that actually got on the wood until I stopped it finally. Dooh!

Where is it posted.

Ah the trials of woodworking.

You turners are a mystery to me…....but I like the bowl.

You should have made a picture with you eating something from the bowl, with all the dye all over you or some such. Like you intended it that way….....you know…....never tell everything…...................

It looks like a nice bowl. Can’t tell its profile (how deep it is) from this photo. But I like what I can see!

It seems like I can’t win. The bowl is about 4 inches deep. Actually I made it quite a while ago but thought it was so butt ugly I didn’t want to post it. Thanks for all your very generous comments. Bill, even with all the walnut in it it’s still white. I couldn’t make a video the spray was flying all over the shop, everything would have been a multi colored blur. Karson I have to much hair to be Curly, but some others on here don’t have quite so much that could fill in. Any takers???
Again thanks all.

Good job Mike. I think it turned out great. Like the others, I would love to see a video, but to be there would have been even better! Keep turning.

Hi Mike, I’ve been playing around with dyes lately (also LJ Trifern inspired), but not using the splatter method :-)

Your post reminds me of an old toy I had as a kid…maybe you are onto something if you can get it to work like this:

Too funny, I wish I could have been there to see the work in progress, but then I’d be spotted like a leopard! Nice results all the same.
