    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

    Kαλησπέρα Stavros,

    In my opinion the pipe looks much better than before.

    I like the color of the stain you used.

    I think you took an ordinary looking pipe and gave it character...the rustication looks great...and you have a lot more patience than I do! Nice Job!
    Take care and check six!
