Thank you! I wouldn't count anyone else out though. There are some cool looking entries on the way. :)Barb, you crushed it!!! Game over folks, here's the winner!! That is the coolest use of steampunking as an embellishment! Even the wire with the gears would be exceptional...nice work!
This is super cool! I think I like the beaded bowl better but I love the ball peen hammer texture. The hammer texture would've been nice on the upper portion of your beaded bowl. That's a very good use of cottonwood.Here is my entry. Faux verdigris on cottonwood. Bowl is around 9x2" the cottonwood was textured with a ball peen hammer after turning and sanding. Basic process is primer x2, copper paint x2, spray acid over the top.

Here is a picture showing my first test piece. Also cottonwood, but it was only beaded, not textured.
