YOu have some interesting colour on the shank.Did you use a pyrography machine .You can get different shades or depth of burning with them .You will have to seal it with a good varnish pyroghaphy fades in the sun.

But looking pretty good and the stick will benifit from a good finish

Hello Cobalt,

I use a small pencil burner at $19.99 here. The shade are made only by burning the wood (all the black for exemple).

tHE REST IS THE FAMOUS kiwi DARK BROWN SHOE WAX. I've put 3 coat of wax and fade it at some place with sand paper.

All the lines are not only in surface but burned down the wood.
