Chimère & furniture

Nice glow, dude —

Do you remember this strange bird? I eventually dyed it with walnut stain, added some white and gray acryl paint and polished the whole table top with a wax of my own making.

Vous souvenez-vous de ce drôle d’oiseau ? Je l’ai enfin teinté au brou de noix, ai ajouté des aplats de peinture acrylique blanche et grise, et j’ai ciré le plateau de la table avec un encaustique de ma fabrication.

Rustic “encaustique”: 1/3 beeswax from your honeybees, 1/3 turpentine, 1/3 linseed oil — makes for a great furniture polish

I also used this polish to wax a frame.

J’ai aussi utilisé cet encaustique pour cirer un cadre.
