Default Dying maple and other woods

I am wondering what to use and how to dye woods.
Look at Les in http://www.penturners.org/forum/show...722#post742722
and you will see what I am after.
Very few other professions require you do most of your best work in the dark with the power off.

I dye woods a lot. I use several products. My favorite is Dr. pH Martins radiance liquid watercolors. I use them full strength on a small piece of cloth. I apply them while the lathe is spinning and I put on many coats. Let it dry for a few hours and then apply the finish. I also use food colors and opaque acrylic paints. It all depends on what effects I want to obtain. If you want more details PM me and I will answer any questions.
