Wood colour wash.

Hi,

Some years ago I coloured pine shelves with Crown Jade silk colour wash . The wash allows the wood grain to show through.

I have tried a few place to buy this product only to be told that it has now been discontinued.

Are there any tips you can offer me so that I may get the same type of effect on wood as I would like my new shelves to match my current ones.

Thank you .

Thank you Shawn , your idea of taking the already painted Shelf along to the paint shop is what I will do.
I will let you know how I get on . Thank you , Celia.

Hi,

I suggest you take one of your washed shelves to the paint store along with a raw piece of the same type of wood that your shelves are made of. By doing so a paint store representative should be able to come close to matching the effect that your looking for.
