  • A John Nelson Pattern

    This is one of John Nelson patterns that Fox Chapel is now selling.
    I think, Dale H wife Linda cut this out from BB plywood as you can see in photo #1.

    I finished it as a "silver faux finish." It will soon be used in a magazine article.

    It's a very easy finished to do, once you know how. Its also, a beautiful piece that I wanted to share with you all.

    It can be ordered through Fox Chapel Publishing.

    John Nelson Pattern

    I'm sorry, photo #1 didn't come up.

    But this one does shows the 2 photos, the first one shows the scrolled pattern on BB plywood, and the second photo shows the silver faux finish on the mirror with the attached shelf.

      A John Nelson Pattern

      To add some contrast to John Nelson's mirror with the attached shelf, here it is shown with the "silver faux finish" on a red bacground.

      WOW, this time, it worked the first time.

        That's very nice, you did a great job. The finish in silver look interesting. I like John's patterns as well. I bought some at the Open House.

              A close up photo

              Thanks for the complments.

              Here, is a close up showing part of the "silver faux finish."

              Here, is how it was done.

              1- I started with few coats of sealer.
              2- I then used a Silver Acrylic aerosol, I applied a couple of coats.
              3- I then clear coatd it with Acrylic Clear Flat aerosols.
              4 -I then glaze it, with a black coloued glaze, by dabbing and mottling.
              5- I then sealed in the glaze with the Acylic Clear Aerosol.
              6- I flyspecked the "dots" with the black glaze.
              7 -I completed the silver faux finish, with a few coats of Acrylic Clear Lacquer.

              Always allow extra time for drying and sanding.

              Good Luck

                  Being a diet controlled type 2 diabetic, I check my glucose. Checked before my shot on Tuesday it was fine.

                  Not yet Jim. The corners of the baskets to appear to be drawn by hand or just a bad copy. The price might go up. Thanks Linda. For some reason I really like doing layered baskets. And my customers like buying them. Bruce read a blacklight shows glue spots. Guess what he bought me from harbor freight...
