Thanks guys!

I'm honestly embarrassed when I get compliments on the wood decks, as I'm still using the technique I learned like 35 years ago: Base coat, Ink wash, dry brush, go have an adult beverage.

I keep feeling like there should be more to it, or I should have come up with something else in the last 3+ decades.  :)

If it's tried and true and it works, and it certainly does in your case, why change it?  :thumbsup:

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

There's an old saying "If it ain't broke, don't fix it!"

Holds true for pretty much everything, in my experience.

"If it aint broke, break it".   ;)

... Base coat, Ink wash, dry brush, go have an adult beverage...

I'm thinking the adult beverage is the major contributor to your success. :mellow:

...I keep feeling like there should be more to it...

The rest of the six pack?  ;)
