  • 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 did that with Creative Woodworks. But when Bruce's group had their monthly meetings and swaps, somehow or other the ones I didn't buy ended up here! I keep all my holiday ones separate. But I also look at other patterns and think how I can reuse it. But sometimes that is just too much for my brain...

                  Since I refuse to subscribe till they do something about the patterns in the pull out. They even made the DVD tough to print patterns.

                  What I do is look at the index of the book on scrollsawer.com and if see something I might want to cut I go to Walmart and check out the book. If I like...

                  Absolutely everyone here has made valid points. That's part of what I've liked about this group.....different view points and different ideas. And we respect the diversity. You people rock!

                  I too miss Bob Duncan. I do not think anyone from FC has taken over that role at least on this forum. If they have I am not sure who. Like Betty, I owe a lot to FC and this forum. If it was not for them and this forum I would have probably turned my saw into a boat anchor years ago. Oh how I looked...

                  Yes I would sand all around the hand and feet to give it some depth.
