Dyed and Stain Picture Mat

Here is the picture mat completed minus the sealant coat.  It places too much of a glare when I take a phtotograph.  The oak leaves were dyed with sunshine yellow on the base followed by canyon tan as a hi lite dye.  Once that dried, I proceed emerald green as a solid base about 95% coverage and completed it with emerald green diluted to a 1 to 2 ratio to complete the coverage.  After the dye dried, I sprayed on a coat of Fiebing's Leather Sheen and let it dry for about an hour.  Two coats of liquid Super Sheen followed and some medium brown antique gel.  The project will receive some Tan Kote before affixing to frame base.
