Wood Finishing – Lady Guinevere Inghean Ui Ainle
If you work with wood, you know that the final stage of any project is staining and finishing. Stains can add a beautiful enhancement to any project. Stain brings out the natural grain of the wood, rather than covering it up like paint. Even if left natural, wood has to have a finish on it to preserve the wood from cracking and rot. You could use a commercial stain and finish, or you could use a natural stain & finish. Natural finishes are easy application, cheaper than commercial finishes, and easy to clean up. They provide a unique look to any project. In this class, I’ll share some of my favorite natural stains and finishes. We’ll discuss some period techniques & finishes, but most of the stains we’ll look at are modern recipes. A list of resources and recipes will be provided.
