Baz, I have not seen an acrylic in anything but black spray. My vase was done with artists acrylic brushed on, I used a sueds brush as did Dave, and to make sure blew the dust out with an airline

Sorry missed your post earlier.

I`ve just been reading about using an airline to remove dust, it was recommended to do so before applying any finish on any turned piece, so preventing any contaminants on the surface damaging the piece as the finish is applied.
I`ll give that a try Derek, sounds not only interesting but also cheap.

Very nice Baz - subtle enhancement of the grain with the wax. Also agree with George about overdoing it with the colour - it might as well be acrylic. Dave's bowl shows a good example of how it should be done I think. You can still see all the grain and character of the wood.

Thanks Simon.
I on the look out now for some brown Oak to see what the gild wax would look like on un-coloured wood.

Thanks for the comments guys. I;m going to give the vinegar a try as well.
Cheers Dave

Just reread my post apply the vinegar with a cloth or something similar and not the wire wool leave that in the jar
Also try it on a practice piece first
