These blanks are part of the Silver Wattle New tree that I acquired some time ago, this tree is one of the Acacia family species that is very local to my area here, fast-growing but with a short life expectancy mainly due to the white fungi that attacks these trees crotches, weakening them and breaking easy from a windy storm.
Apart from being eaten away, the wood closest to the ground had plenty of spalting and was from soft to extremely soft so, a perfect candidate for stabilizing.
This time, I decided to make a small batch with a stabilizing blue and Red mix I had done for some other blanks, I didn't have much left but just enough to try on a few of these blanks and see how they would come out.
I was very pleased with the results and I hope you find them also interesting/unique...!
One of the blanks surfaces was coated with some gloss varnish to enhance all its colours, the packs pics come out a little darker but, the close ups show clearly what they will look like when done...!
Thank you for visiting...!
