Good afternoon everyone!!

I had a chance to get some more work done on this piece. Unfortunately the results, again, were unflattering.

I sanded more and applied the yellow.

I also took a close-up pic of the real issue I’m having. These little black specs form after applying a new color. It’s re-dissolving the existing dye. Maybe I didn’t sand well enough. After sanding these weren’t there though.

Has anyone used multiple colors like this? Do you think the concentration of dyes is too weak? I was thinking of mixing a new batch, twice the concentration. I figure it can’t hurt.

Ultimately I may need to settle for one color and stop torturing myself. BUT before I concede I’m going to go at it at least one more time. :)
