The vessel of this urn is Ash, the top is maple colored with iridescent paint. The finial is maple, died black with India Ink.

The iridescent paint on this project was inspired by projects posted on YouTube by Tim Yoder ( https://youtu.be/XOyG2vyBnk4 ) and Gary Lowe ( https://youtu.be/_tMdQ3p5dqs ).

The lid was glued in after the paint was applied. There is a 1” hole in the middle that the base of the finial fits into.

Amazing work, I have watched the videos a few times. Looking where to buy the paint and mixer. Are you getting yours from Hofcraft? I so want to do this. Great idea on this project.
