  • 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 :

                            Our feed belt keeps moving but Bruce did adjust it the other day when I was done and this is the first time I’ve used it. It kept getting louder so I bet that’s it or it just isn’t tight. Will check it in the morning. Thanks.

                            Betty is the feed belt centered? Do you hear it when the drum is spinning or when just the feed belt is on?
                            I have had the sanding belt stretch, they do that over time, and there was enough hanging out to just kiss the table.

                            I got mine the other day. Also noticed a dearth of Christmas themed projects. I don't recall seeing much Christmas stuff in the Fall issue either. I look forward to new ornament ideas, but those were lacking this year.

                            I do understand some of the constraints in publishing a magazine these...

                            Well, this topic can present a lot of opinions and options. First, if you are seriously considering helical cutting heads, would you take the next step and upgrade to a stationary, floor model planer? Perhaps even a used one. I don't know how much space you have and what your shop power options are,...

                            Our super max has been making a noise that sounds like paper caught but we can’t pinpoint anything. Cleaned what we could, Bruce used dry lubricant, which sounds like an oxymoron to me, and still makes the noise. Started quietly now is louder. Any suggestions before we call for warranty work? I’m...
