Another Christmas present finished up. This frame is made with bridle joints and was finished with two coats of ebony black aniline dye followed by a coat of shellac and then Liberon’s Liming wax. First time using the wax and I’m pretty happy with it.

Looks nice, kinda like the Picture, little confused as to the amount of work involved to make it look like barn boards? :)

Haha, fair question. In real life it looks a bit more like when the millennium falcon jumps into hyperspeed. There is no graying, just black and white. I’m interested in trying this technique with more brightly coloured dyes.

Great look to that frame. Do you happen to have a close up of the grain? I’m interested to see if there is any texture added from this process?

Well done!

Sorry Tooch. Frame is all wrapped up now. The finish is just wax over shellac so no different than that. Just colour.
