Anthony Squadroni's Artwork

We're pleased to select Anthony Squadroni of Warren Center, PA for our Wood Finishing Showcase. Anthony makes both the pictures and the frames. Thank you, Anthony, for sharing your unique artwork with us.

Dear Minwax,

I am writing to you because in all of your advertisements I have never seen or heard of anyone using your wonderful product in the way that I do. I know people use it for woodworking and crafts. I have a unique art form that uses many of your stains after etching my creation in pencil. Quite often people think the work is inlayed.

All of my artwork is done on maple panels. After drawing the subject matter in pencil, it is then etched into the wood which prevents the stains from running together. Quite often I mix Minwax stains to create different hues/shades, then I spray one coat of Minwax Fast-Drying Polyurethane aerosol in clear gloss, then hand-rub three coats of Minwax Wipe-On Poly in clear gloss. Some of the Minwax Wood Finish™ colors I use are: 209, 210B, 215, 223, and 224.
