Re: UPDATE:French Polishing: Finishing and restoring using traditional techniques by Derek Jones

i accidently found a new way to antique a project that might interest people.
I was carrying a small chest from my outdoor workshop into the warmer house to stain and finish it. I didn't notice until later but it was spitting rain and I got some small raindrops on the bare wood. After staining I noticed many small dark
spots all over the chest and they just looked fantastic. the rain had made the rainspots more porous and each spot accepted more stain.

This technique (?) works best on soft woods like pine etc.
