And the paint goes on...continued

Here I am putting the black milk paint coat on. The chair is getting into the final stages and becoming more of what you think a Windsor Chair looks like. 

After the black Milk Paint dries, again for at least 4-5 hours, overnight is even better,  I will put on at least 2 coats of the mixed finish I use and depending on how it looks after the second coat I will put on a 3rd coat if needed. The mix I use is a 1:1:1 mix of Spar Varnish, Boiled Linseed Oil, and thinner. Once dry, the chair will overtime develop it's own wear and look even better. The more it's sat in, the more it will take on a shine in the areas it comes into contact with bodies.
