Subject:
Alcohol drying - color transfer?

Jim K in Trappe PA
>Hi,

I soaked a walnut bowl overnight in DNA and the alcohol became brown from the walnut. I did not get that much color transfer into the alcohol when I tried it with Cherry.

Does anyone know if this wlanut colored DNA should now be kept seperate for walnut only? Will the walnut color transfer into lighter woods? I'll let it settle, and try to filter it with filter paper, but just curious.

Thanks,
Jim
