Antique 3 Leg Table Restoration


I like using a glaze of van dyke brown with a little red. It makes a richer color than the traditional burnt umber. There are thousands of "cherry" pieces in "antique shops" that are actually made of tulip poplar then finished with a burnt umber glaze. A good glaze job has no brush marks and subtle highlights when finished. For tips on glazing see Making Plastic Look Like Wood and Wood Like Plastic.
