My last two videos have used the same colouring technique - working from darker stains to lighter ones, with sanding between coats. I hadn't intended to do the same technique twice, but after I had done it the first time with spirit stains from Chestnut Products, I was asked about using water-based stains - Intrinsic Colours from Martin Saban-Smith. So I made a second video using the Intrinsic Colours. I used the same blank for both media - with the result that there isn't a shot of the two platters to make any comparisons...so here are some shots of the spirit stain version alongside the water-based version. Both versions were finished with a coat of Chestnut Products' Acrylic Sanding Sealer and then three coats of Chestnut Products' Acrylic Gloss Lacquer. Spirit stains on the left, Intrinsic Colours on the right. Hope this is helpful.
