*The Chair from heqq

Hey Folks,

If you read my post about, “My latest mock up“, then you know about this chair. Suffice to say, it has been a learning experience and I am glad that I used inexpensive lumber for my education.

As promised, the immolation reserved for this piece is shown in the above photo. No easy trip to the wood stove for this tormentor. Oh no, only a trip to the diabolical inferno that is the front window with do.

The finish on the chair is white latex primer, then yellow tinted shellac, followed by a gradient fog coat of red tinted shellac. Once the shellac dried, I coated the chair with a gelatin mixture. When that was dry, a thick coat of black milk paint crackled as it dried. Finally, the whole thing was coated with a sprayed on coat of Daly’s Pro Fin polyurethane.

Happy Halloween!
Tom

P.S. Here's the full effect of the front window

interesting.
