This book demonstrates how to enhance wood by stenciling and freehand painting. For those who wish to reveal the natural grain of the wood, there are clear instructions for using paint remover and steelwool. You'll also learn how to apply designs in different colors, how to lighten and darken the wood, and how to make the surface look as though it had been inlaid with a darker wood, such as ebony. In addition, Decorative Wood Finishes gives you essential information about waxes and varnishes - how to color them and make patterns on wood surfaces with them. Every project is accompanied by a list of all the tools and materials you'll need, clear, step-by-step instructions, and no-nonsense tips on what to do if things should go wrong. You'll also find a wealth of suggestions for using your newfound skills to bring out the best in tables, chairs, sideboards, bowls, candlesticks, frames, even egg cups.
