What is the difference in these paint jobs?

A Dye is simply a stain rubbed onto the wood to enhance the figure of the wood. (Flame/Curly Maple, Quilted Maple, etc)

A Grain-Enhancement is generally done on an instrument with a figured top. By 1st dying the top with a darker color, and then coming back with multiple stages of sanding & dying the top with a lighter color. This method can enhance the grain & figure of a figured top greatly.
