Michael has been trying out some new finishes lately. Verdigris, copper, rust and a stain made using vinegar & steel wool. The picture shows an elm bowl finished with a copper/verdigris look.

Decorating the bowl with pyrography and carved detail before adding the finish created a textured surface which adds interest and all together it makes for a very unusual and striking look. 

The inside of the bowl has been left with the natural finish.

We have already sold a few of these pieces, including this one, and Michael is hoping to be using these finishes more in the future.
