That's what they are, English Plum Brown. The silver in actuality is a little bolder than the pictures, the contrast is higher. The lacquer has a slight tint to it as well, which also has an effect.

I consider the Plum Brown to be the original English type color, with color converting to the lighter brown rust color over time. Much like American Black turning to brown rust as well.

What did you decide about the 1/2 'before' and 1/2 'after' barrels?


Thanks Drew.

All your before/after sections are currently "in process", including the half'n'half one I'll be sending you. It's interesting, the Damascus section developed the blotching Doug illustrated in his post, the center of the swirls having noticeable spots, possibly due to higher steel content. Methodology experiments overcame the issue. I'm also coloring a Parker PH "Basket Case" gun in half'n'half for demonstration purposes.

Ken

Well done! Nice that the rib is patterned as well. Lots of different methods out there. No right and wrong if the results are good!

Please don't anybody tell Ken, because we trade work, but those barrels he did for me are first rate. Some of the nicest re-done Damascus I've ever seen. I do his re-joints and re-lay ribs and such, so he thinks we are even, not even close, but don't tell him because he thins we are even ! MKII
