Cedar Cladding Stain

We wanted to get burnt cedar for our cladding, the results from the light burn isn't turning out the way we want so we had to explore different options. One was to burn the wood much darker like traditional Shou Sugi Ban, second would be brushing the burnt cedar, third we would combine the light burn with a stain. We opt to go with the third option. I picked up four testers from the Benjamin Moore store on Main St. I ended up picking up Autumn Gold, Bark, Acorn and Driftwood. It was a tough choose but at the end we went with the Acorn colour. Here are some pics from my staining experiment:
