    Yes. Not all work. Powdering( ceramic grinder or file) and heating the powder is great. Super duper hard resinous wood needs higher temps. More oil rich pieces that are less brittle and more pliable always work.

    Among all the Japanese kyara, Baieido kyara was the most hard to come about, at least for me. Nowadays kyara is prohibited to be exported out of Japan and the only way of getting it is directly from the store itself.

    Yes there are, but far and few.

    This is what I gathered and learned from many sources. Then again please take what I said with a pinch of salt as I am not in any way an authority on this subject matter! As there is no official classification or common agreement, you will find many different views even among the Chinese.
