I will try to visit everyone who comments
and leave them a note too.
I love them, love the written word,
love French (can't speak it or read it),
like the graphic nature of them,
like to make them...
I love doing large scale on salvaged wood
but I also kick out some smaller styles
for sale in my shops.
In my last post I gave you a peek
at the shiny new...
While that is fine...I like
I want it distressed and aged
and full of layered goodness.
So I use my handy dandy palm sander.
I use The Mouse.
It is shaped like a little iron and works great for me.
I rough up everything a bit...
don't be finicky or nervous...just go for it.
I then use Briwax that can be found
at better furniture stores.
This time I used light brown.
I also use a cheap chip brush and rubber gloves.
This stuff is smelly and stains!
(You can look up a previous post I did on waxing
for more info.)
I apply it liberally and
it into all the nooks and crannies.
If I want it very light, I rub off immediately.
If I like it darker, I let cure about 30 min. or so, then buff lightly.
It is a dramatic change when side by side
with the non-waxed.
After the wax cures,
I just rub lightly with a soft cloth or paper towel.
I love the depth the wax gives you...the patina of age.
All my signs are available at my shops.
leave some love and pass it along.
Go visit someone new .
I met so many new friends
and discovered some cool things along the way.
Do I need to make a button??
I am challenged sometimes...
I mean if I could just paint a button
Thanks for joing in...
