Hi Clive,

I am one of the observers greatly missing this topic. I have been interested in netsuke for about 1,5 year and I am in a "reading phase" to try to learn as much as possible in this field.

Through this topic I did learn the diffrence between stain and dye and I was very much looking forward to get some knowledge about patina. I have one netsuke which have "good dark patina". The netsuke was bought from a very reputable dealer in London so I fully believe the description is correct. But if it was described as beeing dyed I would have believed that too :oops:

So I hope you will continue to enlighten people like me in one way or the other :idea:
Regards Roy

Thanks for the feedback everybody.. I appreciate it.

A new Netsuke Frontiers series will appear in due course.. I'm in the process of giving the old one a deep critical review and hope in the new one to retain the parts that I felt worked and to try something different with the parts that didn't. 8-)

We would hardly call any piece of Frontiers a failure, Clive. I'd call it a slam-dunk :!:
