I got some Black Ash with some great figuring. I read that to get the darker figuring to pop out, I should paint the ash with green carfts paint, then strip the paint off, then finish it. Any comments? It seems strange to paint it with GREEN paint to bring out the figuring!
I plan to use a rub-on poly to finish it.
Any suggestions on how to strip the green paint off? Should I use a chemical stripper, or just sand it, or plane it, or uise a scraper? After all, it is just water-based craft paint.
