    I'm not happy with how the "sealing" coat went off on most of them, some of these woods have chemistries that just hate, hate, hate, poly resin. The padauk is THE WORST, the poly just sat there in its liquid state for a couple days! It gets sanded off prior to foiling but I have to seal the wood from the pigments in the bead casting/molding step. Anyway, there are a few that I will post pics of and let you Eager Beavers pick what color beads you want.
