That is a really cool look Roger. How do you prevent dying the tip of the wave?

In this piece it was easy I just carefully applied it with a brush in that area. The tip is actually higher than the rest so there was no chance of it bleeding. On other pieces I’ve used other methods such as re-sanding a specific area after application, applying rubber cement prior to the dye or even using wood bleach. But one of the nice things about dye is you can work it after application by sanding or diluting with water and rubbing or changing by adding other colors on top.

This is a fabulous piece and I love it. It’s a beautiful eye catcher if there ever was one.

I can smell the salt air, feel the sand beneath my toes, and hear the roar of the surf. Great job. Di you do all the carving and sanding by hand or do you use power tools? Thanks for posting.
