Does walnut burl take stain well?
I havent been able to find a single picture of burled walnut stained with something else than a brown color. Does it not stain well? I got a piece of burled walnut veneer that is rather light in color. I am thinking of popping the grain with a red dye (or maybe even white, but will try if this works on a scrap piece first). Then sand this down and apply a amber color then i will fether in purple from the sides so i get a purple burst. Is this even possible on burled walnut? I cannot seem to find anyone adding pigments to the wood other than brown or slightly red.
To me it looks like this piece is light enough to take both yellow and purple well.
