woodfinishingenterprises.com/dyes.html . They have the formula to mix up the blackening solution in the product description. Apply coats repeatedly until the wood is dark grey-black and then wash it with clean water to remove the excess iron (you don’t want to see rust under your finish). Hobbyists and “old school” finishers like to make their own iron sulfate by putting de-oiled steel wool in a glass container with a mild acid (e.g., vinegar) and letting it stew for a week or more (it gets darker with time). The drawback of this method is that the concentration is not consistent. Also, don’t tighten the lid to the jar as the reaction produces hydrogen gas that will burst the glass."> mystery ebonising technique - help please - WOODWEB's Finishing Forum WOODWEB's Professional Finishing - Message
