Step 6: A Coat of Stain
I really like the natural look of the wood and some of you may decide to keep it all natural looking. I wanted this sculpture to last a little bit longer so I decided to give it a coat of stain.
In this case I chose a semi-transparent walnut stain but any wood stain should work depending on the look you’re going for.
The result is a bit different-looking darker sculpture, but I think I’m happy with it! I did my best to avoid staining the larger bunches of moss that would hide its green color. Of course you can always add moss after staining.
