In Response To: ebonized victorian finishes (JIM)

First let me understand what we are talking about. You say ebonized, but then you describe the finish as black paint. Is the finish opaque like a coat of regular paint? Because an ebonzed finish will have an image of grain peeking through, and would indicate a finish of some kind that is very dark. I feel that is what we are talking about, but will wait for more detail, a test with a cotton ball that has alcohol on it sill stick ( in a hidden spot) to shellac with little effort. Try this as well so we can describe a knowlegable response, thanks, James.
