Hi all,
Off the bat, don't string me up #-o bit i'm experimenting :mrgreen:
The 'Guru's' say, "Never use wood glue".....what does Brian do :?:
Straight in to it! :oops:
A small thing board.
Mixed:
Wood glue &white primer.
Wood glue & mahogany stain.
Wood glue with both to get lighter brown.
Ok, Part one completed.
Could it work?
We know that eventually it will dry.
Colours light..for now.

PART TWO
next morn found it like that. #-o

:lol:
The colours change diametrically (have to look up that word! and how to pronounce it!) lost the shine.
But look at the texture!!!

Where do I go from here?
Well, without abandoned it....set on Part 3 of my adventure #-o
Larger and thicker board.

Same exercise from yesterday.
'A lot going on!'...but we'll see.

Expecting negative remarks if any, but thick skinned :lol:
Comment good and bad, its how I learn, know what I mean.
The saying, "Think out of the box!" me!!...…...THINKING.. :lol:

have you got any sheet material? may help with the cupping.

also, may be necessary to apply a coat of the same to the reverse of the board to balance it out- you are effectively soaking one side in water. Alternatively, whilst experimenting, try laying it on a damp cloth whilst it dries.

hi bri, try cutting kerfs in the back side, it may help prevent cupping, I'd recommend plywood for next time, even hardboard is pretty good once primed, I used to paint onto white primed hardboard when I was an art student, very cost effective as well. Looks like you've had some fun :D

the second board is 18mm pine...thought I put it on the plywood ones I cut.. #-o #-o
i'll white prime them, as ive got the primer lol.
Aye surely am having fun...taking notes etc.
Now looking at wood glue for sealing the wood b4 I epoxy resin it...trying to minimize gassing when the resins start to cure..
I like how the wood glue turns from white to well clear..lol :lol:

Bri, do the bends actually matter? I personally consider the corrugations as part of your artistic endeavour. On the other hand, are you intending by this to be fitted in a frame, then..."bulwarks!"

Arhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!! took me ages typing the words out and the picture then went onto preview...and it didn't save my work.
So start again.
This is the 'Simplified' version.
Think here, I've milked the whole experiment, if you know what I mean?
Theres only so many more boards that have scibbles n stuff all over I can churn out...BASICALLY a mess on a board if I'm truthful! my Artist sister disagrees lol.
heres the 2nd & 3rd one cured.
2nd.

3rd

Both together.

Comments welcome =D>

Brian.
