    Ebonizing powder

    I usually hang out on the Spinny planet, but I am working on ebonizing small pieces of wood for finials and stuff.
    I have way to much Quebracho bark powder. If you use the steelwool/vinegar method, you'll need the powder to. I have an extra cup for donation. If you need it, PM me.
    Cheers!!

    I've never tried the Quebracho bark, I read about it but have been having success with just the vinegar and steel wool. I have learned that the more tannen (sp) in the wood the better it works.

    I think all of the planets are spinney. It is the flat landers that are out there in space with no lathe to play with.

    Enjoy,

    I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.
