I have wanted to try out the multiple dyeing process that Trifern had shared. I purchased a highly figured piece of Curly Maple from my local supplier and tried my hand at sculpting. I was pleasantly pleased with the process. I used a Holy Galahad followed by rough to fine grit on a ROS.
The first one I made for the gallery. The grain was not as bright as some of the other parts of the board but it sold immediately. I then picked out the best part of the board for one for my wife. She deserves the best. She doesn’t always get it but she deserves it. I did not complete it by valentines, but that is the story of my life. Unfortunately. My only hope is that she can see how much I love her.
The first coat was black. Sanded back, and then red. I’d like to try a first coat of dark blue next time. Thanks goes to Trifern for sharing his methods.
