More X Ray Stained Art

February 12, 2016

Hello all!  I just wanted to share more of the X Ray stained art pieces.  This week, I have been experimenting a little to change things up...




This botanical was done on a long slate tile and I added a purple-toned stain.  Although I like the subtle color, I prefer my basic Ebony MinWax to work with.  That isn't to say I won't continue with different colors on more pieces, especially the botanicals.








A friend of mine from Hometalk asked if my technique could be done on canvas.  This was something I had been planning on trying but was putting it off.  After Lori posed the question, I decided to give it a try.


When I first started, I didn't think it was going to work at all...



I thought it was looking more like charcoal than x ray.  And the blending was much different on canvas than on the slate tiles.  I also felt as though I was missing the x ray effect.  But I didn't throw in the towel...



The finished piece.  


I still feel as though I lost some of the dimension on the canvas than when I used this technique on slate tile.  Having said that, my sister and another firend preferred the canvas to the slate.  I guess art is seen differently to all of us! :)








Back to the slate tiles and Ebony MinWax, I finished a trilogy of sea shells.

Coming soon... a tutorial on glazing for a special friend of mine. Cindy is requesting a "shabby"  blue glazed finish on a mahogany end table.
