Hi Again Allison, I just happened to think about smoking the origianl piece. Use a candle to put soot all over the piece being careful not to burn it of course. After you get a good coat of soot on it, lay a paper on it to pickup the pattern being careful not to smear things around. That should do it if you can smoke it without damaging the original. I have used inletting black to find the high spots inletting stocks, but I think it would probably be too hard to clean off. You could maybe make some with charcoal?? Good Luck :=)) PS, put something down to catch the wax from the candle,, they burn fast when held sideways to smoke an item.
