Thank you for dropping in sucha lovely comment.
Truth is I regret having sell it. I never tried but I doubt I can repeat this one again.
By the way do you mean "torch" it?
I was thinking ammonia fumigation.
Makes it darker and adds beautiful contrast to wood.
Don't know what it'd do to pine tho
1: get an air-tight plastic container that can hold the project (a detergent bucket will work, hell even a plastic food container if it's small enough)
2: place the project in container and pour liquid ammonia into an open container and put the container inside the larger plastic container with the project inside. (use your best judgment with how much you wanna put in (a bowl of amonia would be fine for a laundry detergent bucket sized project))
3: seal quickly and let sit anywhere from a couple hours to a full day. (if you are going to be fumigating for a long time, you may want to replace the ammonia every 12 hours or so
4: wear some standard safety precautions. (amonia IS amonia)
going to leave as is or are you planning on finishes?
How is the boot now? Have you managed to find a solution for the back lighting?
btw. now you also need a barbie! [as in a goal]
Thanks for your comment.
My kid, 3 years old, was holding the shoe in one hand and a screwdriver on the other. "I'll fix it, I'll fix it" and I was like: "put it down... slooooowly..." it wouldn't take him much to break the heel
I want to make a smaller one soon
Thanks for your input.
