Hand Painted Kaylee Frye Wood Carving: All Natural Staining Techniques

The majority of my work is au natural with a clear sealant to protect the wood, but every now and again, I like to hone my painting techniques. My brush skills are best suited for replicating characters in sci-fi comic books and television series, but I'm always open to special requests. Here is a carving portraying Karlee Frye of Firefly / Serenity. I mounted this piece onto a stainless steel flask. Paint often hides  wood grains leaving an unnatural look. When I get my color on, I use natural stains to protect the wood's integrity so you get color and the unmatched beauty of wood's natural texture.
