So, it’s getting late, I have 5 canvasses to stain, I might as well do it now and then I can put the second coat on tomorrow night.
Grab a brush, squeeze the stain out into a small bowl, start painting. Gee, it seems really thick and dark. Maybe because it’s the last bit in the tube it’s thickened up or something. Keep going, have to put some Gamsol in with it as it’s not spreading too easily, the colour looks strange, really strange.........as I start to cover the last canvas ( with a million thoughts running through my head as to why the stain is so weird) I look at the tube, it says Burnt Umber @#$&
;$ “.$&# @#&
;$% .....so I finish staining the last canvas.
So I am wondering if I have just wasted a $100 worth of canvases by covering them with burnt umber mixed with Gamsol, or can I just go over the top tomorrow night with the actual proper stain and all will be well?
I’ve also used up all my Burnt umber
Waiting on an order from Geneva
