Pine rosin


Recommended Posts

Does that mean the rosin we use today isn't pine?  I always thought that was the only sort?  It is golden colour when in crystals, but turns white when crushed.  Even the tinies love being allowed to stand on little crystals in the rosin box to crush them.  I would suspect that the brown colouring on your dancer's feet was perhaps wood stain from the floor.

The color of rosin is dictated by the time of year during which it is collected. If the resin is tapped in late winter or early spring, it will be gold or amber in color and hard when set up. As the seasons change to summer and fall, the color of the resin darkens and the consistency softens.
