Finished on the Table


Finished on the Table

This is the finished frame. After the Sienna wash dried and was sealed, I gave the frame another wash of Van Dyke Brown and another coat of shellac. Multiple washes give the frame character and complexity. After the final sealer coat is dry, I give the frame a coat of paste wax. Wax tones down the high shine of shellac to a soft glow. It also lays more thickly in recesses. Lastly, I dust the frame with a mixture of \"rottenstone\" (fine pulverized limestone) and pummice. This clings to the wax, and adds a cool, flat contrast to the warmer, richer toner coats. It also saves the frame from looking too fresh, like brand new sneakers. Nobody wants that.
