I was a finisher in South Florida in the 70's and went off to another profession. I am getting back into it and many things have changed. We used to do a lot of simulated goat skin finishes and have a client interested in it. I remember some of the process but am looking for some help to refresh my memory on the process. I remember I used to shoot off base, use a light glaze stippled seal and another glaze contrasting, and remove portions of that glaze to leave the contrast giving the goat skin look. Any help would be nice.
From contributor M:
You don't say what finish you are working with so it is hard to make specific suggestions. I agree with the base color and then a couple glaze coats to match the goat skin you are trying to match (it does come in different colors you know). Depending on what finish you are using adhesion between the glaze and your finish will be the biggest issues.
