  • 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.

                  After a day of sanding cardholder strips for SIX hours which should have taken 2, Bruce is trying to square the table again. It didn’t hold square and he could only put one strip in at a time instead of 3 across. Any suggestions? This should not be this hard. I would expect this from a cheap sander...

                  At least yours showed up. Mine are still MIA. We’re moving my area around to do some work, so I’m sure they will show up. I feel the same way about parts. In 19 years I have spent approximately $600 in replacing worn out parts. Couldn’t be happier with my Hegner.

                  I lost a blade clamp and had to order more. It showed up on the floor about 6 months later, like magic.
                  Spare parts for anything can be expensive. Often low volume but it is sure nice to be able to buy parts for a 20 year old machine and not have to scrap it out or jury rig some repair.
