Two-tone wood stain10/25
I want to recreate the type of finish that is on the image of the picture frame I have attached. This is for a benchtop. Sorry for the quality of the image but as you can see it appears to have a mahogony tone as the primary stain color but at the edges it deepens to a jacobean looking color. I am wondering how this was done and if someone with experience can detail or point me to a tutorial on how to achieve this look. Thanks in advance.
Looks like a sand-thru. Stain it brown. Paint it black. Sand thru the black until you see the proper amount of wood. Clear coat it when you are content.
It is not sand-thru, It is done with shader/toner. It is done with spraying. Some samples will have glazing underneath and then it is emphasized with some shading.
Go to YouTube and look up how to sunburst a guitar (or mandolin). But first read again Bob's brief overview of toning & shading.
Thanks so much for the direction.
I recenty was dragged into a finishing job using a WB dye with a pigment stain after that drys. Nice deep color, where can I learn more about that method as it opens up lots of color possibilities. We make furniture.
