Pickling finishes?

Posted by dannkaren (My Page) on

I have a customer who wants a table finished with a technique she is calling "saroosing" I don't know if that is the correct spelling but that is how it sounds. She says this is similar to pickling. I cannot even find the term in any of my resources. Can anyone tell me what this is and the technique used? Thanks so much

RE: Pickling finishes?

I wonder if she is talking about this technique.

Cissing - is a mottled paint finish created by overlaying coloured glazes and partially lifting the colour with a solvent.

Cissing is done by scattering mineral spirits on oils, and water on latex. To give a natural stone or limestone-like effect, colours suggested are pink, beige, grey, oyster or ivory, charcoal and grey-green. Colours will seem to fade as they dry, but can be brightened with a coat of polyurethane.
