Zhang Ermao listened to the clouds and subconsciously said, “Master Ye, why would you use a real thing from a cooked pit and pretend it was from a raw pit to deceive people? To be honest, these days, tomb robbing is very tightly investigated, so antique dealers like us don’t dare to ask for things from raw pits for fear of getting into trouble and getting sued, but if it’s something from a cooked pit, that’s another story, after all, it’s so old that even if it was dug up 30 or 50 years ago, it’s now white.”
Ye Chen waved his hand and said, “Just don’t ask why, just tell me if there is a way to fix it.”
Saying that, Ye Chen pointed at the thunderstruck wood and said, “And these, I want to make something out of them, it’s best to give the impression that they have just come out of the ground as well, do you have a clue?”
Zhang Ermao thought about it and said, “Master Ye, it’s easy to say that I am a counterfeiter, you know this, we are the best at taking new things and disguising them to make them look like they have just been unearthed to fool people. Of course, this kind of counterfeiting can fool the novice and the half-bottle of water that has not been in the industry for too long, but not the connoisseur.”
The first thing you can do is to use a genuine Qing Dynasty object to disguise it as a genuine Qing Dynasty object that has just been excavated. The next day when you dig it out, it will look like something that has just come out of the ground!”
Ye Chen asked him, “Can this method be discovered by anyone?”
Zhang Ermao shook his head: “You have to say that if you take something new and make it this old, and let others look at it, then they will definitely be able to find the flaw, but you are after all taking something real and putting it in, who can find it? The smell, whether there is that faint smell of earth, blood and corpse, as long as this is done well, they will think that this thing is newly excavated.”
Ye Chen nodded and said with a smile, “Good, then this matter will be handled by you.”
Zhang Ermao was puzzled and asked, “Master Ye, what exactly do you want the little one for?”
Ye Chen did not answer his question, but asked him with interest, “Zhang Ermao, since you have followed Hong Wu, are you still doing business in this antique city?”
Zhang Ermao hurriedly said, “Master Ye, I have received a lot of love from you and Master Wu, and I have had the opportunity to follow Master Wu’s side, so how could I have the heart to deal in antiques?
Ye Chen said seriously, “The matter I am looking for you to do, I really need you to take some time off and continue to go back to running your antique business.”
Zhang Ermao was surprised and asked, “Master Ye …… what do you mean by that? I don’t understand, please clarify.”
Ye Chen smiled faintly, took the two jade trigger fingers and one of the lightning striking wood, and said to Zhang Ermao, “Wait for me for a moment.”
Immediately afterwards, Ye Chen went to the inner room and used his aura to lay a very simple body protection formation in each of the two jade trigger fingers, and used his aura to lay a simple lightning talisman formation in the thunderbolt wood.
In this way, the two jade trigger fingers became two simple protection rings that could shield the wearer from a minor calamity, and the lightning strike wood became a lightning talisman that could only be used once before it broke and shattered.
