Pipex 3 [change of look due to defects]

I had a Pipex 3 pipe with no good grain and a big dark mark on the left side so one day i decide to make her rustic so those things wouldn't be visible.



Unfortunately due to my pc problem last year many photos are gone and i never manage to retrieve them so i haven't got the ''left side'' photos to see the bad grain and the dark mark.



This is the final result and to be honest i am not happy. I have done some experiments with ''duo tone'' contrast and i am not satisfied with the results.
What's your opinion?

You can see the procedure with step by step photos here: https://pipe-smoke.blogspot.com/2010/02/8.html
The pipe code is: M8-3

@Sid.Stavros, as usual your workmanship is meticulous. But I agree with you. Somehow there is not enough contrast between the lighter and darker stain. Very pretty pipe nevertheless.

Nice work Sid and it does look much nicer. The contrast seems kind of subtle but is still a nice touch

I like the subtlety about it, I think it might be difficult to get more ‘pop’ out of it simply because of the nature of Briar.
cory1984, Sid.Stavros and Fusion like this.
