This silver maple hollow vessel is dyed using the method described in LJ – Trifern’s blog – 2 DYE 4.
I dyed 6 items and this one turned out the best. Black then red then yellow aniline dye.
The topcoat is clear lacquer.
Thanks for looking. I’ll post pics of the other 5 items soon.

Thanks, Mike. It’s a learning process (but not as much as your Chinese Balls!!)

Very nice Marty. Great turning. Joe will be proud of how well he has taught this dyeing technique.

As you say, everything is a learning process….One thing though as far as I have discovered – when the mind stops learning it atrophies…like a muscle, if you do not use it….you lose it.

Pretty soon we will see MyHollowVesselTurning.com?

That looks very cool. Maple turned in to an exotic wood. Very Cool!
