What do you guys use to polish the live vein after bark removal on junipers?

i dont think many do polish the bark as it looks a bit false and contrived - but to just enhance the colour a bit a cloth with a little camelia oil gently rubbed on will make the red bark shine (for a day or two)

Take a walk in a forest look at the trees and see how many have a polished look.

Take a walk in the forest and see how many of them are planted in bonsai pots.

Get a very small elephant to rub his bum against it daily. That's how the big trees are polished in the forest where I'm from Twisted Evil
