    <div>I built a dankung board cut to see if I could and used it as a medium to demonstrate a colored wax technique to another forum. Nothing serious here. Just for fun and demonstration.

    I love the color. Make sure you take some sand paper to that band slit.If its rough it may cut bands you put on their. That muck I do know about woodworking.

    <div>Thank you for the interest in the process. It is very simple. I buy the small buffing wheels and mount them on my grinder, which has a foot control. I will peel back the paper from the color crayons that i wish to use and start the grinder. I "grind" the crayons on the wheel and it loads color into the fabric. (there is a lot of dust too.) Then you just buff your frame and reload color as needed. If you stay in one spectrum(?) and go light to dark, you can apply several colors with one whee. lighter greens to blues to black. The same for reds. after coming off the wheel, they are quite shiny. I rub them down with an old sock to remove crumbs and blend edges. After that, finish as you please. <br>There seems to be some confusion. There is only one sling. I just used it to show the color effect on lighter colored wood at the request of some other shooters. Usually I use this process for more natural colors to enhance the grain and pattern of better woods than this was made of. <br>Most people are making zombie stoppers. This looks more like a Clown Killer.<br>I've seen Clowns.</div><div class="clear"></div><div class="signature_div">
