Reply To: FX Wildcat, and a wooden stock – but what color??
Thank you. This was great input!
Stinkyonions: the mix you mention here is very near to my own thinking, and pheelgood – mahogny is ok, it is in the brownish sektion. Green stain mentolio…… Not sure about that on this particular stock. You see, I have this obsession with recreating the wildcat fur in the stock. The shifting dark/light brownyellow in the wildcat would be nice.
So what have I have done today?
COFFEE. Instant coffee. VERY strong. Moistened the stock with it and sanding with 400 paper afterwards.
And YES, I can see the wildcat is coming out of the wood now. But I need some yellow, and will follow stinky’s advise and add some “new maple” or similar.
more to come.
