Ok I admit, these aren’t quite finished, but I couldn’t wait to share. I’d been trying to find a way to add color to some of my projects, but I hate painting. I was using different stains, and even on some toys used denatured alcohol colored with food coloring. But either of those bled so much I couldn’t use multiple colors on the same piece of wood.
Then while meandering the paint aisles at my local Lowes, I came across Cabot Premium Wood Finish stain & sealer, Clear base. Halleluiah!!!!
Colored with food coloring, it’s thick enough to stay put, there is minimal bleeding, allowing several different colors to be applied to the same workpiece.
I found several 4 ounce glass jars with screw on metal lids at the Hobby Lobby craft store, so I can divide the clear base and color them all sorts of different colors.
And the stuff cleans with soap and water! How Cool is that?
OK, I’ll go back to the shop now, Thanks for looking.
