Burnt Bat

As with some of the earlier pieces posted here, this is made from reclaimed pallet wood.

I first painted the wood white and then outline the bat with a wood burning tool. The remainder was created using a torch.

As I coated the piece with urethane... to seal the ash so that it doesn't get all over people... I was pleasantly surprised in the way the ash spread across the entire piece adding more texture to it and changing the color to a more brownish/off white.
