Ebonised Sycamore Spoon
Ebonised Sycamore hand carved spoon with Soldier Blue milk paint wash handle. To get the ebonised affect steel wool is steeped in white vinegar and the chemical reaction makes a stain which reacts uniquely with different species of wood! Finished in flaxseed oil/milk paint and finally burnished with a piece of polished pounamu. 220mm L x 50mm D.
Just wash in warm soapy water, or brush under running cold tap, rinse and immediately towel dry (not dishwasher safe). To rejuvenate the wood once or twice a year wipe on a generous coat of mineral, flaxseed/linseed oil (NOT boiled linseed), tung or walnut oil. Let soak overnight before polishing off any excess.
