Still drying, and it darkens as it does, but I'm digging this


Closer. After some rubbing back:





The color is correct in the last pic. Close ups come up green

Oh, and for now, I'm thinking of leaving the head stock painted with no clear, just sanded fine line this:

The color is close enough, I think, and the lace wood will look completely different if I do the oil and dye.

The color with faint wood grain showing through looks like kitchen cabinets I've seen in the last few years.

We used to do a lot of pickled frost in the late 80s when I refinished furniture. In going to do the next coat straight up white. And only a dash of thinner. Instead of the boiled linseed oil, I'm going with polymerized linseed and beeswax. It's called tried & true oil. Its a food safe oil meant for butchers blocks and cutting boards, but I did the fret holder and those neck rests with it and I love the feel of it. It's bleeding less tint when I touch it than last time, but the color is too dark.
I'm hoping that if I use white, let it sit for 45 minutes and then rub it back, I'll get my color. Then 2 more coats of straight oil in the following 2 days... And then I can convert my shop back to woodwork and start LC0002

Hey. I refinished furniture in the 80's too. Kitchen cabinets as well.

I like how the color is coming out, and am very curious to see it after you add some white.

Can someone show us a pic of something finished in this technique? I'm having trouble finding anything to look at, lots of words, but no pics of pickle-frosted anything, though.

Search for pickled wood. Then look for examples of the frost color.
