    lesson learned

    this i liked till i stained the inside. If i new then what i know now i wouldn't of stained the inside till i sealed the out side.Ofcorse if it wasn't so thin it probably woun't of bleed through. Owell another lesson learned It was just a experiment with the dyes any way. If you look close you can see a number of spots that it bleed through.

    So... Maybe I can see where it bled through?

    Still, looks very nice and I like it.

    Wondering if its one of those things where the maker sees all the "flaws" and other folks might see "character" and "interesting artistic difference"?

    That's a real pretty piece, Steve. I like the contrast with light wood and the dyed parts. The bleed through looks like just part of the wood grain...at least in the picture it does. And I really like the form, too.

    Nice form, I can't see the bleed through either unless you mean that big stripe?

    I guess i just no where they are.If you look right at where the rim curves into the bowl, you see little black dots. and about a 1/2 inch under the stripe, and also down at the foot.. the pic don't show them as well as in person. As i was dying the inside i noticed some, what i thought was splatter from my brush.Thinking i could sand it off i kept going. well after i let it dry i came back to it and decovered it went all the way through. O well live and learn.
