Chinese Gong

This I my take on the taste of Asia challenge, a Chinese gong. The gong itself is mottled beach, coloured with intrinsic colours, textured and decorated with guilt cream. The mallet is ash, and the stand was made from some of cuts of walnut, I sprayed it gold and then black, then rubbed off some of the black with some 400g, unfortunately the effect seems to subtle for the photograph. But up close it works quite well.
