Help! Bleaching turned sour...

David Hammind, in Powder Springs GA
>I'm getting ready for the show my Dad and I will be putting on this July, and I took a beautiful cherry bowl, turned as nicely as I know how, and tried something new - the raw pink cherry was so pretty, I thought I'd try to bleach the bowl, and keep the lighter hues. So, I bought some regular bleach like Mom would use in the washing machine, and rubbed it all over the bowl... Now it looks terrible! Kinda of a sick grayed out green color - what can I do? How should I have gone about bleaching this cherry? Thanks guys.

Mad at myself...
