I am looking how to make frames for photos of old style wood. I did some tests with ammonia, various shades wood, wire brush, decoction of chicory, etc. but I can not get what I want. What is the difference between ammonia and ammonium carbonate? Should we do it with wood recup? Whether or find? Old shutters, flooring? I was told that the old wood could not be worked on the machine to make the rebates or other? Can you enlighten me on all issues ? Thanks in advance for your help
To the old wood, a method , on oak hardwood type, rather dark, is to quickly move a torch to burn the wood surface. Then we rub the tooth-brush shit (definitely not metal) and we remove the burned part, before waxing. This gives an effect of "patina". Test before on bits of no importance to understand the operation.
Ammonium carbonate is the result of the reaction of ammonia with carbon dioxide (CO2) have made free ammonia becomes ammonium carbonate base lower.
As for what it is not possible to work on old wood?? Er. Maybe the person thought the woods would be in poor condition. I got beams in Paris during a reconstruction: oak, she had dimensions of 30x30x200 and were hard as iron wood! It must be said that they had at the very least 250 years :-)
Good evening, chindent The brush removes the burnt wood surface. If you use a wire brush, the wood will be too and you have dug furrows of new wood in the middle of old wood. If you want to create paths, go to the first wire brush, then the torch and finally brush quackgrass. But follow the advice of Robin, try it all falls on before you tackle managers
