Sorry couldn't resist the pun
Here are several photos of my first attempts at dyeing bowls. The one I'm holding I raided wifey's craft supplies for some pigments/paints called Radiant Pearls...pic doesn't show it well but there is a slight metalic look. All the others are done with food colors. All are finished with shellac/walnut oil/carnuba wax finish and wet-sanded with 600 grit and walnut oil. All are turned from dry elm. They are about 1.5-2 inches thick and 3-4 inches in diameter.
That bowl was perfect right up until that last cut...

Very cool look. I'm vacationing in Santa fe and saw an approx. 12 x 16 tall "tie died" vase selling for $2900! It was blue and red mixed randomly. Pretty nice effect. I guess some folks really like it!
