You may be right Steve, but this is not an unknown product. My thought was to use archival method to achieve a unique result. So the question wasn't really an attempt at impovising. It was more an attempt to find someone who is knowledgeable about older, natural or unique staining and/or finishing methods... Gotta start somewhere.
My wife is an artist and uses a ton of different pigments and mediums. She mixes her own oil paints from various pigments, uses egg for thin glazes, gesso, bole, gold leaf, rabbit skin glue, and a ton of other products. We have all this around the house, I am interested in possibly utilizing some of it to create somewhat different finishes.
