Finishing Brass To Look Like Wood

Recommended Posts



I've had the same question. I purchased Britannia metal blocks for my schooner from Blue Jacket Shipcrafters. The blocks are internally iron stropped with wooden shells. I would like them to look like varnished wood. I'll experiment with your suggestions. I bought bass wood strips for the masting and spars and would like the blocks, masts , and spars to appear reasonably similar. I've got a number of different Minwax stains I could use on the wood components. Do you have any thoughts on an approach?


Thank you,
