Color or is it colour?

My first venture into wood dying has been interesting. I am finding that the most difficult part is knowing when to stop. There are so many options when dying wood that one needs to reign in the fascination with color to ensure that the grain shows through.

Here’s my first piece “Pacific Sunset”. It is spalted maple with a blue dye and I added a few sea birds to add to the interest.

I hope you like it.
