This Walnut Wall Art was turned & decorated with paint & metallic gels, about 10 inches in diameter. There is quite an optical illusion when one stands before it to view. One feels “drawn down the rabbit hole”.
hope you enjoy.

Michelle, I would like to know more about these metallic gels you used. Seems they could be very handy in some of my projects.

the metallic gel I am using is old & not made anymore, but I believe the product called RUBnBUFF might be a good substitute..it is in most craft stores.

I won’t suggest making it into a clock (but it sure would make a nice one !). Has a deep coppery look. There is also something reminiscent of carved furnniture about 1600 or so.

You and Lewis Carroll have wonder imaginations, he used words to express his, and you use wood, both make
wonderful lasting works of art for us to appreciate. Once again thank you for sharing. Now onto the vorpal
blade and the jabberwocky.
