  • Color Stain - Help?

    I've got this little 2 oz. bottle of a water-based color stain called 'Anita's Color Stain'. I've had it for so long, I have no clue where I got it. I just used it for the first time, and I really like it. I looked around a bit online, but can't find anyplace that carries it. Do any of you use it? Do you know where I might find it?

    Thanks,

    Teri ???

        So, Teri, how do you use it and what is different about the look you get on your carvings with it. ???

          well, I liked the bottle that I use - it was called 'venetian green' - first, I really liked the shade. But more than that, it went on so smoothly and soaked in so evenly...it did on its own what I usually have to use a combination of water and acrylics to do.

            I finally got someone to help me get to Hobby Lobby, where it was suggested I might find the elusive Anita's Stain, but alas, they did not have it. They had the paint, though, and I did pick up a few bottles just to give them a try - they were 3 for $1!!!

            I've also tried the site listed above, but they don't have any stains listed there, either...and I can't get them to answer me.

            Alas, I fear that the Color Stain must have been discontinued and I am left with this one little bottle to make me wish.

                  Teri - I was into town this morning and stopped by Home Depot just to see what I could spend some money on and noticed that minwax has a lot of different custom mixed colors for their water based stains. Checked out their website just now and the color selection is quite large. I think they are available in 1/2 pint quantities, at least I have a can of premixed light oak in that size. Don't know if they will suit you needs or not.

                  F.E. 6 more lbs and it's plain old Ed

                    Thanks, Ed - I'll check them out! Are you finding it on Home Depot's site...or on Minwax's site?

                        The site wasn't behaving so took the opportunity to go look on minwax's site xxx under Products and Used you click on the pull down select water based stains you'll get a screen with a small icon in the lower left with color selection in small letters (almost like they don't want you to find it), click and your there.

                          Found it - found the color selections, which made my mouth water. NOW the trouble is finding a place to BUY them online. Minwax doesn't sell from their site...I've gone to other sites that sell Minwax, but they don't sell the 'custom colors' online. It may not be possible, but getting someone to take me to a place to have them all mixed is sometimes more trouble than it's worth :

                            Rolf when you say taper from right to left, do you mean thinner near the body and thicker at the end of cloud as on the wing ?
                            And on each cloud touching the body ?
                            I had already sand some part , will show show soon!

                            Thanks

                            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...
