    made a switch in stain to dyes

    Love this stuff. Only use Bout an 1/4 of what I was using with Behlin stains. These chairs were done with 80 % sealer 10 % thinner 1/2 Ts dark green, 1/4 cup honey. Six chairs i applied 1 coat controlled spray. And have a 1/2 spray cup left to thin more to give me a beautiful amber tone on mid 19 century curly maple bedroom set and high boy. I also Have a yellow and black and can match up any color with these Except RED with I use powder dyes and can mix with these dyes if need be.

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

    I always knew a finisher needed to be a mad chemist. Now I am certain of it!

    Yes Carol I'll admit to that. One of my main attributes is my color scene. Now getting to a color can be done in different ways.
