Famous Thomas Bug Juice

Bug Juice is an aging product that helps take the new out of unfinished wood. It reacts differently to different woods, sometimes by greying the wood, sometimes but just taking out “the new.” We use it on our projects under all exterior surfaces. Acrylic washes can be used to enhance the color. It is based on an old aging formula used by gunsmiths. For us, it is a combination of white vinegar and old rust, our old rust being tools found under an abandoned house, and rusted machinery parts.  New rust doesn’t seem to get the same results.
