Default Rocks

I was looking on Flea bay the other day and someone was selling rocks made of bark. Next day I was in the wood shed and came up with a few likely candidates.

The two smaller pieces are of oak and the longer piece is maple. I found ash to be too flaky. Pine strikes me as a possibility but I don't put softwood in the stove and didn't think my neighbours would take kindly to macheteing a chunk from their tree.

First I brushed any loose growth and dirt off with an old toothbrush and sprayed with grey primer.

Next, I drybrushed with raw sienna.

Then a dark brown wash coat.

I followed this up with dry brushing black.

Don't look too shabby. I'll probably finish with a black washcoat.
