I've had no trouble getting the wood to turn an interesting green color after turning it (I mist with water and set in the sun to dry (oxidize?). But I sure have had trouble keeping the green when I start to finish it. I loose the striking color when I apply CA or sanding sealer to the piece. Is it just me or have others had this problem? Solution? Thanks

I really like that wood. The smell is really nice and turns great. I've not had any trouble keeping the green color with a CA finish. I'd guess it's the piece of wood rather then the finish you are putting on it.

PS.. I have never had to treat it special to get the green color. It has come green and stayed green thru the turning. Maybe we have received two difffernt species.
