The Pretzel

Early Dec. 2009

Time to carve: 2 hours
Finishing: 2.5 hours

An interesting project combining some tricky carving with a different kind of finish. The mutable levels integrate to form the knot of the pretzel. The slide has a yellow base coat, brown wash, and a coat of poly. While the poly was still wet, I sprinkled on sea salt. When the slide was dry I coated it again with two coats of poly to seal the salt to the slide.
