3 little ships

My collection thus far.  Today I will apply a semi gloss wood finish to the plaques. 

The August Moon

Finished August Moon under glass.  This bottle had a bit of a turquoise tinge to it that, while I was initially worried about working with tinted glass, I found it really added to the piece in a most pleasing way!

And a summer slips under the radar...

Almost done and ready to attach the bottle.  A couple more details here and there, and we're ready to move on to #4.  A friend recently suggested that I put a sealant on the wood, as opposed to leaving the wood just stained and raw looking... I got a can of semi-gloss wood finish, and was about to apply it to a test piece outside, but wouldn't you know it, the heavens opened up and it is just too wet out for that sort of thing today.
