I used wood stain and a piece wood to make a piece of art work, and I will show you how to use wood stain to make art work. You CAN make a beautiful piece of art by using stain too.
I first saw this this technique back in 2012, on Sawdust and Embryos. I fell in love. I knew that I wanted to do it, but me free handing a picture, that’s funny. My artistic abilities do not extend to free handing beautiful pieces of art work. But I still loved the idea and really wanted to do it. I just had to find a way for someone with my abilities to do it. I was scared when I started, but it went so well, and was so easy that I truly believe that anyone can use this technique.
By following these simple steps, you can make beautiful artwork.
Take a piece of plywood, cut it to size and sand it smooth.
Paint the back and sides of the wood a solid color (or leave it bare). Apply up to three coats of paint, allowing to fully dry in between each coat of paint. Using a projector, project the image onto the wood and trace the outline.
Using the stain you’ve picked for your image, trace over the outline of the image. Let dry.
Using your image stain, apply the shading. Just apply a little stain at the darkest points of the picture you are using, once you’ve finished applying the darkest points, blend those points outward.
Once you have your shading to where you are happy, Apply three coats of sealer to front, back and sides of your work. Lightly sand in between each coat.
I used a left over piece of plywood, and turned it into a beautiful piece of art work. I really love the results, you get the femininity of the rose, and the masculinity of the wood combined together to make something beautiful.
So, what are you going to make using this technique?
