How many samples, trials, paint types ( dyes, tints and stains)
does it take to get the right shade of purple???
No Joke!!! I lost count.
Frustrating was the process..
The dyes and tints, when they dried
did not come close to what it looked like wet.
I use wood dye in browns, blacks, and grays with success.
After torturing myself I went moved back to a stain process that I love,
and can manipulate til it’s what I want.
“ GO BIG OR GO HOME ! “
Finally! A purple that I love for this bench.
It is royal, with depth from the many layers of undertones.
Sculptural furniture stands out as art…..
Making it purple is bold and makes a statement !
Stay tuned for the finished pic!
Til next time,
