Re: MB560 work in progress

What I said before. Very disappointed that you didnīt take part in, Wendy.
This is the best table I have seen so far!

I love everything Wendy.

The table is perfect. You are the one who chose the proper material on this furniture.

Keep going, slowly...take your time and for sure you'll get a special award at the end ! cool

Re: MB560 work in progress

Did you paint the table, or did you carve it out of marple? Great work!big_smile

Looking great as expected wink, agree totally about the table it really looks like it has been carved from some Elven wood, the subtle colours are very well done.

Re: MB560 work in progress

I can't decide what color to paint the chairs.  Dark or light wood?  hmm

Re: MB560 work in progress

Of course dark wood ! cool


But: if you decide the other chance, it could be fit better with the colour choice of the fantastic table . . . roll

I think no one yet found the right color for the chairs. But We all trust you to find it, as per table.wink

Re: MB560 work in progress

I am talking about that I do not agree with the Forest Wardenīs statement, that ". . . no one yet found the right color for the chairs . . . "

Re: MB560 work in progress

Master archer, let me here try to be more precise on my opinion about actual chairs painting:
I made a mistake writing about colors. I was more thinking about the wooden aspects.
Chairs are wooden one for sure and I see no streaks nor knots on any chair.

I tried several wood imitiation painting on chairs without big success
My drawing was not successfull, so I removed it and choose 2 brown colors.
On my table also, I am not completely happy with the result.

Basic principle is : (french tutorial: http://www.master194.com/encyclo/bois/index.htm)
Choose which wood to imitate ==> defines the colors palette
Paint first undercoat color using the bright color
Make the streaks and knots drawings
Add brown glazing several times.

Re: MB560 work in progress

The best imitation is using natural material ... but that doesn't come very close to paint metal miniatures. wink

Re: MB560 work in progress

Hmm, I do love cherry and mahogany.  I may have to paint some inlay, perhaps with some nice, dark walnut...  smile

I wonder what Mallorn wood would look like?  wink
