      What finish did you use? It sure looks pretty good in the picture.

      What kind of pyrographic embellishment did you do over the ebonized interior?

      Is the artisan red dye light fast?

      Nice job.

    • Ed_McDonnell
      Ron - 30 coats and all that sanding is a lot of work, but it sure makes for a beautiful finish.

      How did you finish the pierced areas? I can't imagine you sanded each pierced opening after every 2 coats!!!! Mabye you did!!! That woudl be something else.

    • Ron Wehde
      Ed - The pierced area was sanded smooth and then I put 4 coats of a matte finish on it with some light clean up sanding to add additional contrast.

      very nice, how many coats of dye did you use???
    • Ron Wehde
      Thank you. I just used two coats. It was a mixture of mostly red with some black and a little green mixed in.

      Stunning piece, Ron. Could you go into a bit of detail about how you applied the dye? I have a set of Mixol tints and have tried mixing them with DNA and wiping on, but can't seem to get the deep color absorption you have.
      Any guidance you could give would be appreciated.

      Thank you,
      I use Artisan Dye from Craft Supplies. I mixed the color and tested it on a scrap piece first until I got the color I wanted and then applied it full strength without any thinning.

      This piece is a winner. Great work.
