Hi. Anyone know how this type of door finish gets done?
Im guessing 2 coats black primer, 1 coat of black topcoat, sand off distressed areas and apply red stain?
I would put the finish dark over the red and scuff / sand / distress through to the desired level of messedupness.
red first and then black,
I do this thing all the time.
Stain first, seal with clear, primer tinted to colour, sand through, clear.
If you try and stain after the colour coat, it will bleed and discolour around the area a little.
thanks guys :-)
Conestoga does it....
When I zoom in on the photo, I don't think it is a rub-thru. Looks like an applied color over the black similar to a dry-brush or cowtail technique when glazing.
build black to desired saturation
that door was definitely red before it was black. you can see the red popping threw in the corners of the raised panel where the black doesnt cover.. . also you can see the red threw the black in several places where it was very lightly burnt threw. Besides the fact that red would not be that vivd if brushed on top of black.
i thing general finishes website shows how to do a finish like that
This finish appears to be a rub thru finish...The application of hard wax on the edges will help in the rubbing effect after colored finish (black) is applied..
Have done similar finishes many times...
