What type of wood and its' thickness would be get the best results for making Christmas colored flame yule logs?
I would like to try and make colored flamed yule logs this year. What type of wood would get the maximum amount of absorption of the (chemical) mixture of colored solution into the wood? What would be the thickest circumference that would enable the colored flames last the longest?
Most internet sources suggest tightly bound newspaper, wood chips or pine cones. I would like to do the same using wood in the form of small logs, in order to make it resemble a real Christmas yule log for the fireplace. They may take up to a month to dry, prior to using.
