I think I figured out the art to this staining with dark wax, ceramics! Yest ceramics like painted in the 70's and 80's. Seems that is the closest thing to compare this process to. Now if your not old enough to remember, the rage in doing projects back then was ceramics (Santas, vases, plates you name it). In the early days we painted over raw material and it would be fired, but later you would buy a piece and paint and stain it. I did this Santa in the late 70's. The comparison
would be, you have to learn to control the stain on the painted project.
Anybody else done ceramics?
BTW, I have no idea what ended up being stamped on my pic from my old blog. My Santa, my pic, my blog, my house. Anybody have any ideas what is embedded on the pic?
Big, big change. I think he did an awesome job. I don't know what the white bits are.. there wasn't anything on the top.
I think she is a beauty.
Thanks Annie, glad to have a familiar project back.
I do love hearing from you guys when you take the time to stop by! Thank you so much... I know mine is no big fancy blog, but I love the friendships I have made, so I am keeping at it.
