  1. Hallo, i just wanted to share some Netsuke i have made. The first is an older piece i carved.It was the first Netsuke i was satisfied with, it is a Strawberry with a "Fly". I have tried to apply a yashadama stain (like the one Masatoshi is discribing in Mr. Raymond Bushells book "The Art of NETSUKE CARVING"). I also socked up every Information i could get on the forum. But it somehow still doesn`t worked out like i`ve planed it. The Strawberry was in the cold infusion for almost 8 hours. The Fly for 30 min. I also finished the Strawberry with linseed oil and the Fly with Rustins Danish oil. I must say right now i prefer the natural appearance of the polished wood. But my boxwood seamed to be of inferior quality. It had gray strokes all over it. Next time i will plan my carving and material more carefully. Fly- 3,5x3x1,5cm Boxwood Strawberry-4,5x2,5x3 cm Boxwood For how long do you leave your pieces in the infusion? How do you obtain the very dark brown color?
