  • Texturing with glue sizing and colorants.

    Colorants and Metallic Bronzing Powders can be added to the glue sizing, use 1/3 white glue to 2/3 of water, add the colorants and mix well.

    This panel was first sprayed with a silver acrylic base coat, and then allowed to dry. I then sprayed two coats of clear gloss acrylic, and allowed it to dry.

    I loaded a brush with the silver bronzing powders in the glue sizing and flicked the brush with my finger to create the textured look, I allowed texture to dry, and then apply two coats of the clear gloss acrylic to protect the textured finish.

      Funny you should mention texturing with glue.
      I was putting up some casings around my pantry door this weekend. One of the casings was split to I glued it with regular yellow wood glue.
      I wiped the excess glue off but I did not sand
      When I primed the wood I got that notorious crackle finish that was very popular a few years ago.

      Now I have to sand that spot and re prime!
      Do you have any finishes that will produce a hammered metal finish look?

        Hammertone Finishes..

        Carl,

        I'll let you know, as soon as I can get to it.

        I did a couple of articles on crackle finishes.

          Hi Carl,

          The hammered metal look is available off the shelf in aerosol by RUST-OLEUM.

            Can that be used on wood as well as metal, Marcel? I don't know if it's available in N America but there is a brand of enamel pint in the UK called Hammerite which has a hammered finished, but AFAIK it can only be used on metal.

              Hammertone finish

              Carl,

              This is a faux hammertone finish, I used a piece of small plastic bubble wrap.

              I will post the photos with instructions when I can put them all together.

                  Hi Linda - thanks for the comments on the welds. It took me an hour or so to get into the swing of MIG wire welding but I really like it in preference to stick welding especially for welding thinner material. I confess to investing in a new angle grinder to help with the cleanup and dressing. I bought...
