Hahaha.... Well, what you did looks great. There are layers of color and highlights, so it's all good.Oh my gosh, I'm so sorry I didn't mention this, but I didn't even end up using that brown stain! It was horrible.
This $35 bottle of dye is just staring at me from across the room, taunting me. It's like "hehehe you loser" but I will find a way to use it!
I have some similar dyes and stains that don't wipe off even though they say they will. I've used them as base coats for things that got dry brushed later with lighter colors and they turned out well. (Although, I've not seen how they hold up under weather. This year will be their test of that. They just look good.)
