Shellac, Linseed Oil & Paint: Traditional 19th Century Woodwork Finishes - Woodworking
This product is no longer available.

by Stephen A. Shepherd

Written by an expert in antique restoration, this book covers a wide range of finishing methods used in the 1800s. Original formulas and instructions from dozens of period sources are supplemented by Shepherd's own observations and advice.

It begins with a short chapter on smoothing surfaces and preparing them to ensure finishes adhere properly. Mixing, applying and repairing shellac are covered, as well as how to prepare and use French polish, hot shellac sticks, spirit varnishes and Oriental lacquer. It explains the preparation and use of linseed oil and oil varnishes such as rosin varnish, Vernice-Martin, copal varnish and Japan black.

Two extensive sections detail how to make and apply traditional paints, along with techniques such as applying graining effects and metallic leaf, trompe-l'oeil and stencil work. Appendices cover related subjects, from staining and dyeing wood to making your own paintbrushes, with a glossary listing modern equivalents for archaic terms and materials. A valuable resource for anyone who restores or reproduces antique furniture.

Softcover, 8-1/2" x 11", 160 pages, 2011.
