    Tasmanian Eucalyptus burl bowl +

    I have been fiddling around with powdered metals for quite a while now. Some with success others, well never mind

    This one was roughed out a couple of years ago for the 'Boss'[LOML] she was not so fussed with it so I spent some time filling some of the resin veins with brass powder. Not too much just a few subtle spots to suggest thats its gold caught up in the wood. Its probably going to end up in the craft shop.

    11x4 finished with WOP and buffed to bring the gloss abit. Had a hard time to get the brass to show up.

    Kind of looks like veins of gold. I tried that a couple times with less success. Nice bowl.
