  1. Hi Daniel, Thank you for this very thorough answer ! Do you use acetic acid before immersing the pieces in yashabushi dye ?
  2. Hello and thank you to everyone who added precious info to this topic. I'm preparing my first yashadama stain (I got European Alder cones and Japanese Alder cones, I'm making yashadama stain of both separately, I will test them and post the comparison if it's useful) using the method described in Masatoshi's book and I have a question for those who have already used yashadama staining : how long do you let the wood soak in the yashadama dye ? From this topic I infered that the time does not really increase the intensity of the color ; does 30 min seems long enough to you ? At the moment I'm learning to carve on some lime tree, which is quite soft.
