I finished the clock on the left a few hours before
it went to a craft show so I don’t remember much
about it.

Those are some amazing clocks. What did you use for color on the red one?

Those are really beautiful. At first glance they look like antique porcelain clocks. Thanks for sharing.

BinghamptonEd the red is a red concentrate by Lenmar which I doubt is still in business

Marter 1229 The clock on the left sold but I didn’t put the other for sale until I build something similar to have something to show.

They also made a dye stain which was almost as strong. Another type of color I use often is the plain ole water colors you used a lot of when you were a kid. Another stain I use is India Ink but it is water soluble so it raises the grain and cause extra steps in the finishing process. I only use lacquer for a top coat and the Lenmar mixes with lacquer I spray as a toner. The company actually suggest to thin a lot and to spray on the stain as they suggested not to use straight out of the bottle. L/W that is just lacquer you see.
