This is a Trifern inspired maple crotch wood hollow form. Aniline dyed using Trifern’s technique with wipe on poly. It measures 6” tall by 5’” wide. A neighbor stopped by while I was applying the poly and she called the piece mystical so thats were the name came from. Thanks for looking.

Lou

I had to double check who posted this when I first opened it… it looks like you have nailed Trifern’s technique quite well… Very good job! I need to break down and buy some aniline dye sooner or later and give this a try.

When I saw it I thought it was Trifern’s. It is mystical The wood has such nice character, & the dye just made it look super.
