    I used some food dyes to stain a couple of puzzles I made of a parrot and pelican. Gave the bright clean colors I wanted.

      I've used food coloring in the paste form for a lot of things. Colors come out nice. You can dilute with water to get the exact shade you want.

          I have also used the clothing dyes sold in all grocery stores and drug stores. Both are alot cheaper than the dyes used sold in the craft stores.

            I was musing about that myself the other day - do you mean the powdered kind of dye that you mix with water? If so, do you use the dyes at the recommended strength or with less water to make the colour more concentrated?

              Glad to hear he is getting back on track. After seeing what my wife went through, after her fall, I wouldn't wish rehab or PT on anyone.

              It will sit on the coffee table for a couple of weeks/months - Until I finish the next one. Then it get relegated to the collection to await the next craft show. Or it may go to the art gallery for a few months.

              Hi Jo - that is an absolutely stunning piece of work and a labor of love to draw the pattern and then transform it into a dimensional wood project and give so much life to the character. Your choice of wood color and grain combination is also spot on. Wow!

              I'm going to share this image...
