Darkening a picture frame with gel stain without sanding???
Recently picked up a nice oil painting but the frame is gold, which I would like to darken. Is it possible to darken with gel stain without sanding. Frame has intricte design which can't be sanded, and from what I have read on here, gel stain goes on like somewhat like a paint. I was thinking a dark stain and dry-brush a little gold on. Would this work?
If I can't do that, I will probably spray paint it with oil rub bronze and maybe touch it up with a little gold.
Share your picture frame "makeovers" with me please.
