Wow, that is some extremely dark varnish! 
Thanks for sharing your cooking method.

Yes it is dark :)

For every cook I got bolder. This last batch is as far as I'm going to go, because it will be too dark if I go further.

The colophony is ordinary pine rosin from Finnish pine trees, here is from another cook when it starts to melt
