Re: Cable ?
You don't have to boil in baking soda to get that gray patina look. Simply dissolve baking soda in cold water and let the cable sit in there for about 3 days. When they dry they will look the same as if you boiled them in baking soda.
After the baking soda treatment, I dip mine once in brown formula one. You want to talk about something that disappears, this is it. New cable dipped in Formula One still has a sheen to it even after multiple dips. My method makes them slick and dull.
I load all my snare cable too. Makes a big difference for how I use them.
