    Use plain denatured alcohol you get in the hardware store.

    Here's another example of combining relief with chip carving:

    Thank for your suggestion. What type of alcohol do you mean?

    Good tip. thank you.

    Hello: I think your lime wood vase is lovely. I like your idea of chip carving on one side and relief carving on the other.

    Relief and Chip-carved Vase

    After a long time, I wish to post this vase of lime wood. On one side there are two daisies and on the other some chip-carving patterns. Unfortunately, the wood was far from being good, because it was too dry. Your comments will be most welcomed.
