I currently don't have the spray acrylic varnish that Tina called for so I decided to make another table top that I can experiment on.
And there was a nice round piece in the laser poop so decided to experiment on that.
I sanded the top then painted the piece black on both sides.
When that was dry, I sponged on Hunter Green.
Then, using the same sponge, added some Leaf Green.
Spread the piece with clear water, than used a toothbrush to spatter it with Ivory White.
Again coating the piece with clear water, used a liner brush to add veining to the piece. I only had a 3/0 brush so not as success as it would have been with the 10/0 called for. I've also seen instructions for using a feather for the veining which I would have liked to try but couldn't find that either 😒
Not terribly pleased with it, but honestly, it looks a bit better in person than it does in the picture.
Because this piece is much bigger than the ones I did at the workshop, there is a fair bit of warping so I've put it under a book until tomorrow when I'll do some experimenting with brush-on varnish and see if I can make that work.
