Does anyone know if I can pick branches from certain trees and turn them into driftwood? Im looking on google and cant find a DIY process. Can anyone shed some light?
How Patient are you? it can be done but it takes a long time. Select your branch, cut it where you want it. Leave it sit in a place of direct sun for 6months to 1 year. Then remove bark, boil/bake, scrub bleach however you plan to treat it, then get a vat of water, and soak it changing the water every other day or once a week until the water stops changing colors and the wood stops releasing tannins and the wood sinks. this can take up to another 6 months or longer.Bert,
I am aware of that but I was wondering if you can dry out the wood and then boil it turning it into driftwood or something similar to it?
