I completed the box yesterday, but I’ve been struggling to get my camera to work.
All of the light areas of an image have a pink tinge, & I can’t edit the pink out.
I even tried taking pictures outside, but it was even worse.
Here’s an out door picture, Blah!! Maybe someone has a cure for this disease. HELP!!
In the meantime I’d like to tell about my recent discovery.
Barb has multi-chemical allergies, & I’m always looking for something that doesn’t bother her.
At first I used mineral oil on it, but was a little on the dull side.
Even the smell of raw linseed oil bothers her, so I was looking in the art supplies at the big W,
& I found purified linseed oil. I opened the cap, & took a sniff, no odor whatsoever.
So that’s the finish I’m using. I mixed Beeswax, & purified linseed oil about 50/50 Put the sealed baby food jar in
some hot water, It’s turned out the consistency of soft margarine.
I rubbed that in with a couple of coats, for a nice satin looking finish, with no odor.
Here’s one picture that didn’t turn out to bad
Notice the pinkish area in the lighter wood. I can’t edit it out.
I’ll have to take some pictures with Barb’s camera, but the lens quality isn’t quite as good.
