    Given that chromium oxide is mutagenic, it might be a good idea to wear gloves when doing the application!

    I was wondering what that weird arm-lookin' thing was growing out of my side...

    Good thought. I didn't realize that...

    Boss tutorial, Josh. Many thanks. I'm gonna apply chromium onto my new TM paddle tonight (got the chromium from Tony too). It came in a little tub in the form of a fluid, like dark green paint. My guess is that Tony has mixed some chromium oxide powder into some strop dressing like neatsfoot oil?

    So the diamond stuff I got from Tony with my paddle doesnt need to be mixed with anything first? I just put a few dabs on and smear it around?

    Diamond paste comes premixed. Dab and smear. Just go easy.

    And the liquid green stuff from Tony should be as well. It's probably something like neatsfoot oil or Lexol conditioner, so it's good for the leather. Just go easy.

    Did I mention you should go easy?

    Thanks for the quick response! Can't wait to use it! And how long should I wait after pasting the strop?

    Well, I've applied it nice and thinly to one side and it looks about right.

    But ! I got a tiny amount on the latigo side! It wasn't a drop or anything near that much; more like a faint finger print. I thought I was being very careful to avoid any transfer to the other sides, and I don't know how I manager to do it, but it's there. I've wiped it off as best I could, but now looking closely I can see it in the grain and it's rougher than the rest of the latigo.

    If anyone has any ideas how to get this out fully, please help! Have I ed-up the latigo side?
