so I just got into wood carving and I honestly totally love it, I am mostly trying to get my hands on things that are helpful to the work itself I know I need to get my hands on my carbon paper soon that would be really helpful.
But I remember that I can across a product that can help you color the wood after you have cut it I found it somewhere online but now for some reason I can't find it again and I don't remember the name of the stuff at all if anyone can help me out that would be great.

and yes just for starters I do have a set of craving knives and small lil wooden boxes (so have the basics all down)

I think so that would certainly would fit in with what I am looking at, I really kind of kick myself in the shin for not writing down the name of the stuff I found....it looked like it came in lot of different colors and came in a square shape sort of like sculpey......if that kind of thing comes like that it might what I am looking for.

I did a piece thats a unicorn that I really like and I thought staining it in color might make it stand out a lil more then regular stains would.

There are colored stains out there, but if you want to make your own, you can always water down acrylic paint. Test the consistency and color out on a scrap piece of wood. If you like it, apply it to your piece. When its done drying, I recommend adding a couple coats of polyurethane to seal it in, or you can do a spray finish that's sold at many craft stores, and you can find it in gloss or matte.
