B.a.d #6

So it continues. Here is a 6" dia, 1.5" tall elm bowl dyed inside with green food coloring. First time I've dyed the inside of a bowl. Not bad color wise, but I need to get something brighter for insides, make it pop more.

That bowl was perfect right up until that last cut...

Looking good. Elm has some nice grain and with the color added it sure makes it different

Bass, I'm with you on the color on this one, although it does look a bit better in person. A little brighter green than the photo shows.

It tears out easily (on these dry blanks anyway) but it sands out easily and I really like the effect you get with the dye (even if this one is not one of my favorites).
