Colouring Wood

When:  Apr 20, 2021 from 6:00 PM to 8:30 PM (ET)
I’ve applied colour in various forms to my work since the early 1990’s.  I discuss surface preparation, use of wood-compatible dyes, ebonizing, bleaching, ebonizing, fuming, liming using both traditional lime wax and acrylic paint.  My dye technique involves the use of only the primary colours – red, blue and yellow – and black. I show how these colours are applied to a piece separately rather than premixing colours to achieve spectacular effects on figured wood.
