Today I  attempted to make the wood I’m using to frame my exhibition look more like aged wood. I put steel wool and vinegar in a jar a few days ago to create an oxidising agent and I used this today on 2 frames.

The idea is that the solution will make the wood look grey like aged wood. After one coat here is a comparison between the two oxidised frames and the new wood frames.

Before building the frames I took some frustration out on the new pieces of wood with the idea in mind that the bangs and scrapes would take on more of the color from oxidising and help with the aged look.
