I used Verawood, Purpleheart, and part of a Christmas ornament kit to symbolize justice, faith, and power. The bottom of the ornament kit seemed too small so I used the top and I added a bit of Purpleheart to fill in the hole.
Considering Mardi Gras is so over the top, I had planned on beads, coves, and texturing galore, but I just couldn’t do it. I normally prefer simple lines, to have the wood speak for itself. It was fun to do and I’ll try again—Mardi Gras beads . . . doubloons . . . sheet brass . . . brass powder and epoxy over texturing . . . the possibilities are endless. Thanks for looking.
