Common misunderstandings when playing with water hyacinth and bodhi:
The more sweaty hands when playing water hyacinth, the better: Many people often think that water hyacinth likes to sweat when playing water hyacinth, so when playing water hyacinth, they think that the more sweaty hands, the better , although water hyacinth is easy to color, but in order to get a beautiful color, be careful not to seek quickness, and go too far, which will cause water hyacinth to turn black.
Water hyacinth needs every day, hour and time: In fact, water hyacinth needs the secret of 3 points and 7 points when playing. Water hyacinth takes time to oxidize, so that it can easily absorb the oil covered on the hands, so that the color of the patina of water hyacinth will not be stained with dirt on the hands.
Water hyacinth needs to be painted with a brush: As for whether water hyacinth can be painted with a brush, in fact, the lines of natural Nepalese water hyacinth are not as magical as Vajra Bodhi, and it is not easy to get dirty. Therefore, it is not suitable to use a steel brush with a relatively hard material for brushing, which will destroy the texture of the natural water hyacinth bodhi surface. Occasionally use a softer brush to clean it up.
Hyacinth can be immersed in water: Bodhi seeds have a characteristic, try not to immerse in water, or be splashed by water for a long time. Because bodhi seeds are the seeds of plants. If it is not fully air-dried when exposed to water, it is easy to mold.
Why is the water hyacinth bodhi black?

A small amount of sweat will help the water hyacinth to change color, starting from the yellow skin and turning red, and it will start to shine over time.
