Chet, do you have a link?

No I don't Ken.  I guess the best way to describe it is it's like the car interior material that was used back in the 30's and 40's or even earlier.  It was usually gray or beige.

I wiped on one coat of shellac and then sprayed three coats of GF High Performance.  The arms came out feeling a little rough and I couldn't figure out why.  I think but I may be wrong that in bending the wood it may have opened or stretched the pores some to where it was feeling rough.  Any way I sanded them back pretty good with 400 grit and then sprayed them again but laid it down a little heavier and they came out great.

How about a light patina? Just enough to dull the shine & darken it a bit.

Making them even a little bit darker would concern me because of the final chair itself.  I don't want the pins to be a distraction - but do want them to be noticed.

Well, whatever you choose will be fine. The pins (and the chair) are gorgeous.
