Curly Grains!

Curly maple done two ways!
Trans tint dyes and burnished milk paints.
@Russ Braun thanks. I used black then sanded back, red sanded back then yellow and orange sanding back each time. In person the grain looks three dimensional.
@Buddy Brewer depends what you want. The black I sanded back a lot. Then with each Color I did not sand back as much. But I do sand each Color to I expose some undyed wood. Less and less though as I add each Color. So with the black no surface Color left just what went deep. Then each Color after that a little Color is also left on the surface, but i do expose bare wood at each stage.
