>I would like to get some feedback/tips on introducing color into my projects with tints, dyes, etc. What woods work best? What products are you folks using and techniques? Bleeding caused by dyes following the natural wood grain is the first thing I noticed when playing around. I tried to retard it with various other finishes on hand without any education: danish oil, tung oil, Deft, 1/2# shellac cuts. How do you control the affect? I did layer some of the tints and got some interesting results, too.
