Wood Stabilizing!!

So the dye and resin bubbled away for 3.5 hours.  When it stopped. I left it to soak for 7 hours. Then I drained the fluid off and wrapped each piece in aluminum foil.  Baked it at 200 degrees for 3 hours and there you have it a formally soft piece of wood now impervious to everything and nigh indestructible.   The only down side is I dyed it blue but it turned out green. I was told that might happen with yellowish woods so it is ok.  IT looks a bit like malachite.   I think it will look nice. It has been a long day of stabilizing so  I will clean off the rest of them tomorrow and maybe show off the nicer ones.
