  • Quickie Ornaments!

    Two more Christmas ornaments finished. These are so easy and fun to do! Carved on the corner of a diagonal cut basswood...5", painted with acrylics, one coat of Deft semi-gloss spray lacquer, then lightly antiqued with light brown Briwax. Ornaments.jpg

        Hi Bob
        Nicely done, where do you buy Deft lacquer and light brown Briwax?
        I have a buddy wintering in Florida driving back home end of March, likes to shop for tools and other stuff for me

            Bruce, I get my Deft lacquer from a local hardware store but I imagine you could get it at Home Depot or Lowe's. I got the Biwax online from Smoky Mountain Woodcarvers http://www.woodcarvers.com/briwax/

              I like those guys Bob. I have a question regarding the Briwax, do you wipe it on, let it set for a minute or two and then just wipe off the excess? I assume that you don't buff the wax off otherwise it would leave a bit of a shine on your carving and yours don't show that at all, just a soft finish which you would expect with the Deft.

                Bob, those are super! Very cleanly carved and nicely finished. Wonderful ornaments. You make it look easy.

                  Tinwood, I brush it on with an old toothbrush so it gets into all the nooks and crannies, using very, very, very little Briwax...less is more in this case. I let it sit for about 15 minutes, then buff it with a soft cloth. Then I like to buff it further with a good horsehair shoe polish brush and then give it a final wipe down with another clean cloth. This method gives the carving a soft luster appearance that I like.
