Well this is probably old news now, but I wanted to show my latest project using the techniques I learned here.
I made this cutting board out of maple with purple heart edges. Then carved the grapes from the Aspire disc.
I then did the cleanup sanding. Applied two coats of sanding sealer. I wanted to leave some 'tooth' to the wood. I then painted with acrylic paint. It took two coats of paint to get the proper shading. I then highlighted the grapes and leaves with a wet towel and 600grit sand paper. I let it dry for 24 hours then finished with two coats of lacquer.
It is 10x17" x 1" thick. The other side was left raw and then I used mineral oil and let it soak in. This goes in a 9' hutch with wine and wine glasses. I hope to finish the hutch up this week, but thought this turned out well enough to show.
Again thanks for the tutorial, I keep coming up with ways to use it. Learning from others is much cheaper than teaching your self.

Sorry to dig up an old thread and I don't have Aspire. I only have Vcarve Desktop, but I snuck in here to grab that glazing tutorial.... lol. Great job and it was very detailed for a newbie like me. But one thing I was a little confused on was the GEL. I never worked with GEL stain before although we were told to use GEL stain on a fiberglass door we purchased a few years ago. I never got around to trying it, so I am new to it. I bought a can and opened it up and looked at it... lol. It is like jello. How do you apply that? Do you dig a normal brush into it and scoop up a glob and smear it? Sorry if this is elementary, but I am an old newbie and never worked with it before. A little advice on how to apply it would help me. I use an old cut up Tee shirt to apply other normal stains... is it the same concept? Thanks again.

Google is your friend :lol: :lol:

I don't have any personal experience with gel stain myself but a google search throws up a lot of options, this video is by General Finishes so it's from a manufacturer & should be good info. They seem to have quite a few different tutorials on how to apply it to different surfaces :lol: :lol:

Hope this helps, sure one of the experts will comment if its completely rubbish :lol: :lol: :lol:

A little advice on how to apply it would help me.

Apply a light sealant (lacquer, 1/2 pound shellac, light spray of poly) and wait for that to dry.
Wipe the gel stain on with a rag and then immediately wipe it off.
If it isn't dark enough do it again and wait a bit longer before wiping it off.

Thanks guys for the reply. I actually thought that trying to google something so elementary would take me down the rabbit hole...

But I get it now... old rag, not a brush. That was my main point.
