I have a customer who may be giving me a steady order for pens, but she wants them blue and I don't do acrylics (hate the smell) so here are several trials. From left to right: CraftSupplies Artisan dye blue 1 coat; 2 coats; food coloring; alcohol based ink. 2 on the left have 2 coats shellac/walnut oil/carnuba wax finish. 2 on the right the same followed by a coat of straight walnut oil. Wood is maple with a little curl.
That bowl was perfect right up until that last cut...
