      Ron, very nice. I really like the tree figure and the colors. How were you able to get dyes to shade like that, and did you dye or color the inside?

      Thank you all for the very kind words.

      Hal, I used an airbrush to apply the dye while the piece was on the lathe. I used a darker shade of dye around the bottom and blended it in while the piece was turning. I used flat black lacquer inside. I've found from experience that if you use dye inside on a piece thin enough to pierce, the dye will go all the way through to the outside.
