It works!

So here we have it , black walnut dye in alcohol. It came out quite pale so I had to evaporate off the alcohol and resuspended in a smaller volume. I started with 100mls and ended up with about 5mls but it’s the colour I wanted. Tomorrow I shall add a few drops to some lacquer and job done!

About Spock's Sister

I have a collection of vintage microscopes with a variety of interesting condensers and functions. I also sensitively restore old, damaged antique brass microscopes.
