Ebonizing Wood

    Hi folks,

    I am trying to make an ebonizing solution with about 3/4 cup of white vinegar and a few tablespoons of steel wool. I rinsed the wool in water with soap to get rid of oils and then added the wool to my vinegar. So far after a day, I see no color change in the solution. In fact, the vinegar is so clear I'll bet I can use it on a salad. Its been in the garage so its been cold at night.

    I looked up making this solution on the web and it is mighty easy. Just wool and vinegar. Some say that one would start to see bubbles. I see nothing.

    Any tips or suggestions?
