It really would be nice to know if Chuna does different things under
certain conditions or when certain ingredients are in the recipe or
with certain colors of stain. Of course my problem with it would be
that it seems like it would be a bit more harsh on the hands than I
would want.

But Erfan certainly obtained a beautiful color that is much lighter
than the deep browns and near blacks obtained from Navaid 1 or 2. So
perhaps Chuna has possibilities other than to push the stain color to
dark or black. Perhaps, especially if the stain is already dark or

Question for Erfan: Did the stain color continue to develop and
become different over the next few days...Or did it remain that color?
