In this intensive one day class, Mitch will help students understand the coloring techniques used on wood that professional wood finishers use every day on high end furniture and millwork. This class is for those who want to create a custom look or have the task of matching an existing color.  Students will learn how to greatly enhance the look of their projects using professional techniques. Mitch will demonstrate how dyes, stains, glazes and toners work on a variety of woods using a variety of coatings. Being able to mix and blend colors together is an important skill for the professional finisher because it affects all dyes, stains, glazes and toners. With the information gained from this class everyone will understand the color wheel in order to control color. “Color on color” is an easy technique to shift a color from being an unattractive color to a gorgeous color. The use of glazes and toners are extremely important tools for those who need to create a color that needs to match an existing color. Getting to know these finishing terms and applying them to wood will make finishing fun.
