Making of Table-top

In order to photography my work on a wooden backdrop and table setting, I was able to require an old pallet. This was then taken apart and reassembled closer together as a single panel.  Once smoothed and sanded roughly, I used a homemade stain to colour and darken the wood to a dark brown/ black.

The stain was made from white vinegar and steel wool soaked for 3 days. The wood is them prepped with strong teabag solution before applying the vinegar mixture. This then left to dry blackens the surface. This was then applied again one dry to gain a deep rich colour before sanding, the sanding after reveals the grain. This will then be used to photograph my final outcomes on.

This was then applied again one dry to gain a deep rich colour before sanding, the sanding after reveals the grain. This will then be used to photograph my final outcomes on as I wanted to capture texture against the high gloss interior of bowls. Although I will have to see if the wood distracts from the ceramic texture.
