Color in turnings

Here's one for this week. Add color to your turnings.

You won't have to use their dye suggestions. Common clothing dyes work too as do stains and powdered dyes.

I have used the Rit dye mixed with DNA a few of times and seems to work well. I have never used good leather dye but have heard it works even better.

Thanks for this link. I've seen turnings with Color, but the demonstrator fame was in the finish. I'll try to find his site and paste it later.
