=================================================================================[Know-How] Preparation before using layout materials

Q) Are there any points I should pay attention to when I use purchased
driftwood or stone for the first time?

A) Some driftwood may float depending on wood type and dryness.  If the
driftwood is likely to float, soak it in water in a large pail for some time or
place an appropriate size of stone as a weight on the driftwood arranged in an
aquarium.  In both of these cases, the driftwood absorbs water and sinks in about
a week’s time.  When using a stone for the first time, brush off the dirt or
stone powder on the stone surface well before the stone is used for layout.
