Keep up the great work.
The Staining process was quite a few Steps. We used ML Cambell WoodSong II Microton Toners
The Staining process required 2 colors.
1) First We Sanded the Veneer with a 120 Grit Sand Paper
2) Then we Sanded with a 220 Grit Sandpaper
3) Blow and Wipe the Saw Dust off
4) Then we Shot a 50% - 50% Mix of WoodSong II Microton Spray Stain and a Achohol Thinner. 3 Coats of this 50 - 50 went on. The Color we used at this Step was Cordovan, which is a dark Copper/Penny color.
5) Then we used a Mahogany Grain/Pore Filler that got rubbed on with a Burlap cloth and then Dried over night.
6) Next Day we removed the Grain Filler with a Turpentine and Steel Wool. Leaving the filler in all the Grains/open pores of the veneer. This Step accents the Grains and Fills them up. It also darkens the veneer a bit.
7) Then a Light Sanding with a 220 Grit.
8) Blow off Saw Dust and wipe with a Tack Cloth
9) The we used a ML Campbell Magnalac Satin Clear. We Mixed this with 25% of the ML Cambell WoodSOng II Red Spray Stain I posted a few pages back.
10) We Shot our First Coat of the Magnalac and Red Mix, let Dry an Hour.
11) Sand with a 320 Grit, Blow off Dust and use a Tack Cloth to wipe again
12) Then we Shot our Second Coat of the Magnalac and Red Mix, let Dry an Hour.
13) Rub with a Steel Wool, Blow off Dust and use a Tack Cloth to wipe again
14) Shoot your Final Coat of the Clear and Red Mix
