I want to do a faux wood finish to match wood that is mahogany, it’s very dark, almost black. Can you please tell me what colors I would use to obtain that finish.
Faux Wood techniques are really easy. Of course their are always the very technical detailed faux wood grained finishes. That’s not what I teach… Yuck. I don’t want to work that hard. I like easy, peasy.
So the wood graining techniques shown in the video are just basic, easy…. (anyone can do this) techniques.
Now, to make a really dark wood, the base coat color must change. Usually it’s a yellow undercoat, but for a dark mahogany the undercoat will have to be more brown than yellow.
Really a mahogany finish is going to take a few more layers of glazing as well. That will give you the depth of color you are trying to achieve.
Have fun… debra
