Default Help in finishing a piece

Hello, my name is Jerry Spaulding. I'm new at this and could use some
advice regarding finishing. I've taken a couple classes with Ray Cover. Ray is an
excellent teacher and we probably covered this but with the amount of new
information Ray puts out in a week my sponge was full. What I wanted to do
is bulino a wolf in the inner frame - hot blue the whole thing - partially
remove bluing from the border leaves and inner frame to accent them -
totally remove the bluing from the wolf picture. I can see possible
problems with bluing over bulino and removing it. Any advice on how I was thinking
of doing it or how you would do it would be appreciated.
Thank you
JL Spaulding

Jerry...When you get your wolf finished..you'll blue the receiver & then take a fine watercolor brush & some enamel and mask out around the border..next take a q-tip and some Lysol Toilet Bowl cleaner & remove the bluing inside your frame..once it starts to remove the bluing..take it & rinse it very quickly..because the longer the Lysol stays on there it will etch the metal..next take a toothbrush & some water/baking soda and go over the area to neutralize it. now you have French Grayed that area..I have done this on floor plates that I have done game scenes on...hope this works for you.

Thanks for the advice JJ. It was a pleasure meeting you at the Blade show this spring. I hope to do it again.

Jerry..I like what you did to the Winchester receiver..I see that Ray has got you on the right track...it looks really nice. Hope to see it when it is finished
and hope the French Gray technique works for you. Keep up the good work.

Yours truly,
JJ Roberts

Thanks JJ, I appreciate the compliment. I'm cutting my teeth on this one. I spent a lot of time on the layout. Not much to it afa leaves go I guess but I just liked the symetry of it. Good thing to, a barreled action and my midsection met often enough - scrolls would have had me getting a barrel wrench. I worked on the layout for the other side yesterday and started on the wolf tonight.
