Weathered Finishes


Here's a finish that I've been working on for some time. It has the basic weathering which is the darkening and streaking of the wood, but also thrown in there in various strategic spots is dark red. For the most part it's a natural finish. It's a blend of several oils and some other ingredients to get this effect.

For the most part it'll just be one or two colors. The combination of blue and purple would be Weathered And Bruised. Red is Weathered And Bloody. Orange would be Weathered And Rusted. Green would be Weathered Copper. Imagine a weathered swirl!

Anyways, tell me what you think about it, if anything. And of course, enjoy the pics!

Two questions-
1. What kind of wood is it?
2. What do you use in the Oil mix?
I like it very much. That body with the bound neck will make a great instrument.

Thanks guys! Glad you all like it.

The wood is african mahogany. I can't say what the recipie is for my weathering technique. Afraid I'll have to leave that as a secret for now.
