The black bowl was dyed with black ink jet printer ink. I was experimenting!
It almost looks like it was painted. That dye really penetrated and made a deep black color.
The other bowl was dye black, then red, followed by yellow.
All have a lacquer top coat.
Thanks for looking.

Very nice Marty. I like the red stripe, looks perfect. When are you going to start chip carving on some of your non-platter turnings? I think they would look great.
