The difference is clear and they look great. But I have to ask if the chips are actually absorbing the oil. Probably it varies between different types of China clays, but the ones that I’ve handled (just Milanos and majestics, I think) felt pretty plasticky and I’d be surprised to hear they were very pourous.Light mineral oil comparison.
90 chips have been oiled - can you spot them?!
