  1. Thanks for the help....that is exactly what I am looking for. In my day, there was no 'eco flo', and some of the things I used (probably incorrectly), aren't around anymore. I know that when I went through my tools, and compared to the current Tandy catalog, I had several that they don't sell anymore. Now, one more question. If I want to make an area lighter than the rest, (the hands) according to the Sheridan formula, when do I apply the resist (I am using Super Shene as the block out...any recommendations there on a better block out? It seems a couple of coats of super shene does the trick). Back to the question. Would I apply that resist BEFORE the overall coat of neatsfoot, then the neatsfoot, etc etc, or would I do the neatsfoot, THEN do the resist, and then the rest, or what? How would you do it?
  2. Actually, I used a Figure tool, the F899, which I consider to be a 'backgrounder tool', or as least I use it more for that than the other.
  3. These are two covers in a series of three I am making as Christmas presents for my church staff. Praying Hands is for Youth Minister, Praise Him is for our music pastor, and I've yet to do the third for our pastor, which will be the classic 'Jesus knocking at the door' scene. I have a question tho. I am not confident on the staining process. It has been many (20+ years) since I picked up the tools, and have forgotten many 'tricks of the trade'. I would appreciate your imput on how YOU would stain or finish these pieces. If you could describe step-by-step. I know some like 'natural' look, others a stained look. I don't plan to color them (even LESS confident in that area thanks in advance. Tim
