    When thinking about adding more color to the naturals, I saw also a mention about ink. Do you think that mixing beeswax with ink or with acrylic paint could work? Mix then together, warm up and then rub the beeswax onto the wood.
     
  2. I think it would work better to let the ink seep into the wood directly and then use the beeswax to seal it.

    inking the wood, and then waxing it, its OK, but mixing ink with wax, its difficult, as it is impermeable, and will not mix (I imagine) just like pooring water and oil in a cup, it will not mix

    I agree with all the others. But who knows, you could always give it a try?

    <div>I did not as I thought that the friction of the wheels on wood would suffice. Colors tend to the pastel but I believe warming it after application and buffing again may deepen the colors. I did a thread "sling with crayon buff" that explains all that I did. Thanx.</div><div class="clear"></div><div class="signature_div">
