Warmed Up Walnut Bowl

This piece is made from a piece of black walnut that has lots going on in terms of grain swirls. The original color of the lighter sapwood was a bit too blah for me so I layered dyed shellac over a thin layer of water-based dye applied directly to the wood. The result of this process is a brownish-orange tint over the lighter spots and almost no change over the deep browns of the “walnutty” wood. The dyes also help to bring out all the interesting grain features. Top coats were clear shellac, rubbed to a gloss sheen. Very lovely piece, if I do say so myself.
