In Response To: FAKING QUARTER SAWN OAK (ROBERT)

If the rays are very bold you may want to try making a new drawer front from an old quarter sawn dase board from salvage. The method I use to create the effect is to use a, slightly thinned, raw sennia glaze, with a little bronzing powder added, between coats of sealer. With a 1/2" square tip artist brush you should be able to make these flakes, with some practice. Go over this with some yellow toner to punch up the amber color, and possibly use, a with the grain stroke, and some burnt sennia glaze to get a very fine streak effect over portions of the flake where needed. Practice all this on scraps and be prepared to use some of this method on some of the surronding areas to blend in the look with the real stuff.
