- This is a slice of wood from a tree that we fell. Usually, a slice like this is taken from the tree first, to cause the tree to fall a certain way. The first and second coat of paint was a stain blocking primer, KILZ, which covered the whole slice. Wood sap will tend to bleed through, so I did let this cure for a good year.
- Painting the bark layer on the inside of the slice, which is definitely a distinct layer, a cream color was next.
- That followed with a dark green for the outside of the slice.
- I then added a touch lighter green, blending it with the dark green.
- Oh, that beautiful red added a pop of color.
Do you see possibilities around you? I am always looking for an unusual item and thinking what can I use that for. What can I make from that junk, in this case a piece of wood?
And the seeds were the final touch. I still think the seeded watermelons are the best! I put my watermelon slice outside for the centerpiece on our patio table.
