Default Photo finish

Nick sent me some pictures of the varnishing process. The first photo is of amber chips, which Nick is sorting and cleaning. They get heated (outside!) to around 380C. Once melted and the impurities have burned off, the heated amber is combined with cleaned oil. The second photo is of the oil being cleaned. It gets shaken several times with water. Once the water and oil fully separate, the water (at the bottom) containing any impurities cleaned from the oil is drained off.
