Description

Horse Chestnut is a very pale creamy coloured wood, often very figured or burred but hidden by the blandness of the wood. This for me is ideal material for my colouring technique. I use multiple coats of lightfast stain to make that otherwise hidden figure stand out. With this piece I used Royal Blue and Light Blue and Yellow to achieve this result.

 It has been finished with multiple coats of an eco-friendly high gloss industrial lacquer which needs no maintainence.

The Holly lid has a handcut 12tpi thread and has been covered with 24ct gold leaf.
