    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.
