the perfect Chinese Red
Seems after years of restoring oriental furniture and working on color tints that will work I found a very simple formula .
Using the powders and lac-over 30
Use Red Maple / Deep Mahogany.
About a 75/30
I adjust as i go. And apply a quick spray of Hawk sealed . The sealed lets me see the true color.. It take some practice but its worth the effort.

I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.
