This piece of Rewarewa was a little bug eaten so I thought it would be a good piece for my next releaf piece. I turned it out of an oblong block this time and removed the back legs to give it a more realistic leaf look.
After sanding to 600 grit I airbrushed it with green acrylic. It is polished with a waxed-based polishing compound removing all the paint leaving what had penetrated the wood. The raised veins are textured with pyrography and then polished. Wood: Rewarewa
