Lately I experiment with wood powder dyes.
Thi time I used leftovers from Easter. Yes you are right. The colors I used to stain 18mm birch plywood are powder egg dye.
I just add much less water. After that I combine the colors on the frame to achive betdr look.
You can see all characteristics of the plywood because it is not paint.
After dye I aplied 2 coats of clear varniish.
I made one TTF, one OTT and one UNI frame.
Enjoy...

The colors really brought the grain out nicely. Love it
Yes, really the grain pops out nice.
The tip is after you put first hand of dye , let it dry and then send down very light before putting second layer of dye.
The reason is that grain will rise up after first layer of dye is applied because it is water based dye.
The grain rise up only once so after that you are safe :).

I want...I NEED ONE! They look fantastic. Smart thinking using the Easter dye. I use to used the rites clothing dye when I made guitars. It is pretty nifty stuff.
