Just to save time I have two questions.
First I know that purple heart is brown after turning but if you put a finish on it while it is brown will it in time turn back to purple?

Second one what if any finish could be used for honey dippers ?

Honey dippers use anything you want on the handle, but leave the dipper part plain.

Yes Purpleheart will turn more purple with sun exposure.

Yep, purpleheart is photo sensitive.  The brown is a result of oxidation.  A true UV blocker finish will preserve the color once it's purple.  I've only heard of one true UV blocker finish and it was called frog spit or frog juice or frog something.  An old man once told me about it, says that the guy that created it only made small batches and would only sell it in a small pint or quart, no bulk sales and no wholesales.  That may have changed by now and again, I'm feeling too lazy to google it right now.

Happy 1000 to me!!!
