Colouring Wood – IRD – 20 April 2021
April 20 @ 3:00 pm - 6:00 pm PDT$15.00
I’ve applied colour in various forms to my work since the early 1990’s. I discuss surface preparation, use of wood-compatible dyes, ebonizing, bleaching, ebonizing, fuming, liming – using both traditional lime wax and acrylic paint – and faux painting techniques.
My dye technique involves the use of only the primary colours – red, blue and yellow – and black. I show how these colours are applied to a piece separately rather than premixing colours to achieve spectacular effects on figured wood. I show how bleaching can be used to change the outcome or be used on its own.
I discuss different ways of ebonizing or darkening wood by applying an ebonizing fluid and fuming with ammonia.
I discuss and show the effects of various commercially available treatments like crackle glaze and faux metallic applications.
