  • Vintage Corvette

    A guy in Michigan is in love with his car and wanted to give himself a gift for Christmas -- an intarsia type of piece done of it....but wanted the colors replicated as close as possible on the vehicle, so yes, dying of the wood was needed. The finished size of this piece is right at 20" long. Just finished it.

    Beautiful car! You did an amazing job of rendering it. He is one lucky guy on many levels.
    One, he owns that car, two he found you to do this project for him.
    What dyes did you use?
    You lit the fire for me to do one of my car

        Hi Rolf--- I "dyed" it using diluted acrylic paints applying to moist wood. The guy wanted the exact color of his baby, so I had to mix colors and keep testing on scraps of the basswood used for the car. Meticulous but really nice. It's got 5 coats of clear poly on everything except the "glass". For the "glass" I applied a 2 part resin. He wanted the vehicle itself as realistic as possible. I don't know if you can zoom in on the "glass" areas...but if you are able to, you will see seat, door, and dashboard details inside. This piece truly intimidated me, but the result was rewarding.
