  • 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.

                  I must apologize to everyone on the list. I'm afraid my ornaments will be late. Thursday afternoon, Connie got checked into the hospital with congestive heart failure. Between that and her alzheimers, it has been an interesting couple of days. Once she is released from the hospital, she will go to an...

                  These items, except the Christmas sign, are for 2 orders. Had a tough time this week, that brick wall kept getting in my way! Other than the market, I’m off until Monday! I decided to raise the price of the Christmas sign to $40. Tomorrow will be a heat wave - 45 at 6am! Mostly sunny. We’ll see...
