Black specks on mahagony7/7
I am trying to match this chair to a desk how do i get bleck specs on this mahagony? Any info would greatly appreciated. Thank you
looks like black pigmented. you can use black pigmented (compatible with your topcoat). i'd guess black spray stain would work as well. flick it on with a brush, or mist it from a squirt bottle.
we recently put together a sample like this and used black glaze. i'm not 100% sure if i like this and will likely go with black pigmented if we get the job.
yeah thats called fly speck. and as google said, its easiest applied by "flicking" it on with a brush. Take a 2" or so chip brush. Cut the bristles short so they have some stiffness to them. Dip it in some black glaze or whatever you decide to use. Then run your finger threw the brush. The stiffened bristles will fling the black off and give you that effect. As always, practice on scrap.
i never tried it but i have heard that a tooth brush works good for fly specs.
Done it several way.. do some testing... I have used toothbrush flicking with good results... reduce your glaze to get the specs just right. another way is take your air cap of a gravity gun with a small nozzle/needle setup. reduce air pressure to almost nothing and fluid adjustment to almost nothing and blow the specs... the gun is a little more uniform.... Binks used to make a nozzle just for specking for the old 2001 guns...
