You can buy pre-mixing oil based stains meant for antiquing your wood projects but they can be expensive when you want to antique with an unusally color (something besides brown), so lets mix our own.
Place a small amount of Hooker’s green oil paint of a sheet of tin foil. Add several brush loads of linseed oil and mix well. Add several brush fulls of turpentine, mix again.
Step 18: I prefer a synthetic large flat shader for antiquing over an ox haired brush … just my preference. Spot antique your fish by brushing one coat of your Hooker’s green mix over a small area of the carving. With a clean dry cloth (an old t-shirt or old bed sheet) wipe off the antique coloring. Repeat until the entire Whittle Fish has been stained.
If you want to lift more antiquing color from the high areas of your fish wrap a clean area of the cloth around your finger and lightly dampen with turpentine. Rub the turp cloth over the high areas.
