As an Artist and Do-It-Yourself blogger, I wanted what everyone wanted in 2009, that beautiful, distressed, silver gray look. The problem was, I couldn't find the exact color I was looking for on any shelf, or in any store. I mean the pigments and dyes looked nothing like the drift wood I saw on the beaches of La Push, WA. Not even close! No paint product could satisfy this perfectionists vision for glory, so I ended up doing what any respectable DIY'er would do, I invented it.
Though I must admit, the process wasn't easy, I had this dream (if you will) that I could invent a weathered formula just as my eyes saw it. AND I wanted to make products without all the stinky chemicals and harmful VOC's. I rolled up my sleeves and got to work. If anyone says that inventing a product is easy, slap them! It is #tots not easy. I failed over a hundred times. In fact, I didn't have my first solid water-based reactive stain for at least twelve months. Two years after elaborate testing, I was satisfied with my creation.
Now it's my ambition to share these earth friendly products with you as we join hands and stain the world gray!
"Weatherwood isn't actually a stain, it's a reactive tannin stain that expedites the aging process through oxidation. And it's the most earth friendly on the market!"
