While making a lake table, I had to protect it from a monsoon storm, so I covered it with a piece of MDF board.
As the board protected the table it absorbed the water and dirt blown in from the storm... the result was a stained and warped piece of wood destined for the scrap heap.
Seeing it on the trash pile as it waited to be hauled away, I decided I wanted to redeem it instead.
I incorporated some scrap cholla skeletons I had from another project along with some papaya seeds I had salvaged... this piece is the result.
Medium: Resin epoxy, cholla skeleton and papaya seeds on 1/2" MDF
