With Vernis! I'm still really scared about colour transfer, but I've seen the bronze Bedfords that let-trade has sold and they all make me. The bronze is GORGEOUSSSS I love it!!! I also love Perle (especially the Perle Reade on let-trade's site) but I'm scared of colour transfer and yellowing. But oh my...that Bronze Bedford is just...beautiful. How is the bronze for colour transfer? If it gets dirty, is it really noticeable?
