it darkend when I put the finish on itCool! Did you add color to the trail or just finish it and it darkened naturally?
Cool stick! Now is this the sparkleberry that has blue/black berries (Vaccinium arboreum) related to blueberry or the one that has red berries (Ilex verticillata hybrid)?
That is it, it also looks like a huckleberry they look the same but the sparkleberry leaves and berrys are bigger and the huckleberry are much smaller.
i used 3 coats boiled linseed oil after it dried a few days I put on 3 coats semi gloss lacquerAnother beautiful stick Randy I have not heard of sparkleberry but it looks fantastic with the bug trails. What oil or finish do you use Randy.
