Wood Carving



Wood Carving
why would you rub gasoline on a wood carving? can I lessen the smell?

I recently visited Mexico and picked up some beautiful wooden carvings from street vendors in a poor area. These are blackened wood and REEK of gasoline – looks like they really rubbed them with it. Was that a blackener? What purpose does it serve? Is there any good way to get the smell out so I can display these in my house?

May have used gasoline to kill bugs or just burnt it to blacken it. I would leave it outside for a few weeks to air out and then clear coat the entire piece a couple of times

An alternative finish can be easily achieved with Paramount Grove Sandalwood Scented Wax The process is quite simple . Apply the wax with steel wool and rub with a cloth or woolen pad to give a natural, gentle sheen. The advantages are that there is no need for applying several coats of expensive polyurethene varnish, there is less need for a dust free surface, and the rich Sandalwood scent makes the whole house smell great. Highly recommended.

Simple, easy way to provide protection for wood. A traditional tried and tested method and great results.
