This was a fun piece which had to be finished for my Cowboy Boot Class at Lee Valley Tools next week. I needed to demonstrate detailing, texturing and painting for the upcoming class. It looks not too bad.
Sealed with a spray on shellac and then some Rust-O-leum glitter paint on top of a brown base stain.
Hope this will cause some creativity in the class.
