  10. Hi Louis The instruments I like always have a mixed colour between the golden ground an another in the top coats reflexing and bringing a lots of hues as you change the inclination fo the light. To me, the golden yellow is life. Without this I see some bored hue. Regards

  12. Hi Edi I think you don't want to press the leaves but to let it drop without contaminate the pigment. So I guess that surely there is another way to extract, e.g: to cut the long leaf in short parts to prevent the stop of the juice into the cell. Or to stand the leaf in other way with long cuts to help dropping. Thanks for the link . I will read that Regards
  13. Hi Edi I dont know how much drop but I will insist with others leaves. Thaks for your reply
