The shelves in the Barn Showroom are a little bare and a popular carved item is almost non-existent so it was with that thought in mind that I experimented with a slightly different way of producing mushrooms. On getting the first example finished I oiled it and, while it was still wet I thought I’d take a photograph. Looks shinier that way.
Having taken the photograph seen here, I then put it on the shelf to try fill some of those gaps. Within half an hour a customer walked in and grabbed it, exclaiming how nice it was, instantly followed by “You’ve just done that, haven’t you?” Yes, her hands were covered in oil. After a little clean-up, she was still determined to have it though, so you’ll have to be happy just looking at the picture. 🙂
