Moisture content, density, grain direction, and some other factors vary between types of wood, therefore different species are likely to result in different products, especially with an abrasive personalization method like sandcarving.
Sandcarving does not create contrast and may require paint or stain to achieve any depth of color. Sandcarving typically leaves a less consistent, grain-type etch best suited for projects with a more rustic feel. These variations may affect the way colorants such as paint and stain take to the wood, with softer sections absorbing more color.
