Sharing an idea = Feather Inlays

I started using Future Floor Finish, an acrylic liquid, for doing feather inlays. So far I have completed somewhere between 40-50 rods using this material, some that have had a lot of use in the past two years. I also use Rod Smith finish over this to finish the rod and there has been no adverse reaction. I am on my second bottle of the stuff, really cheap compared to preservative, and am very happy with the results. Just wanted to share something that has worked for me.

I've only done one inlay, and used CP. I liked it because you could start all over by wiping it off with a wet rag. Can you do the same with the floor finish?

I've only had to redo one. After I had carefully removed the feathers I cleaned the rod outside with a mixture of ammonia and Armstrong floor cleaner. Got it right off. If it's still wet I just wipe it off with a wet rag.
