Steampunk Tray

Well it was supposed to be a steampunk rusty finish to this wooden tray.  Hasn't quite turned out as I wanted - I think I should have sealed the wood first with pva or similar.   Although I made sure the paint was very wet, the salt technique wasn't quite so good.   Possibly need to use sea salt or rock salt.

Painted in much the same way as the rustic heart, finishing with the quin gold.   I think it looks more like mahogany than ruster metal, but hey ho - I still like it.

I love the nails and bolt heads that came in the greyboard kit.  Painted with paynes grey and quin gold and a little gold rubbed over the edge with my finger - they look so realist in real life.
