Ed will give a two hour “Colouring Wood” demo. The demonstration will cover:
- surface preparation
- use of wood-compatible dyes
- liming – using both traditional lime wax and acrylic paint
- and faux painting techniques.
Ed’s dye technique involves the use of only the primary colours – red, blue and yellow – and black. He will show how these colours are applied to a piece separately rather than premixing to achieve spectacular effects on figured wood. He will show how bleaching can be used to change the outcome or be used on its own. And he will discuss different ways of ebonizing or darkening wood by applying an ebonizing fluid and fuming with ammonia.
Everyone is welcome to attend, including non-members. The demo will start at 7 PM US Eastern Time on November 4th, 2020. Ed will open the meeting at approximately 6 PM for Meet & Greet and audio/video testing.
We are requesting $5 for FSW or DelVal Members, and $10 for Non-Members.
