I thought the boot was impressive, but this, this is just superb! I'm sure you'd agree but there is something just so fascinating, almost hypnotic, about the lines and shape of a high heeled shoe. You've captured it sooo well in this carving. Well done Sir!

Thanks for the kind words. I sold it like this with no finish.
By the way do you mean "torch" it? ;)

lolwut XD
I was thinking ammonia fumigation.
Makes it darker and adds beautiful contrast to wood.
Don't know what it'd do to pine tho

I would look up a guide if i were you, but here are the steps in a nutshell:
1: get an air-tight plastic container that can hold the project (a detergent bucket will work, hell even a plastic food container if it's small enough)
2: place the project in container and pour liquid ammonia into an open container and put the container inside the larger plastic container with the project inside. (use your best judgment with how much you wanna put in (a bowl of amonia would be fine for a laundry detergent bucket sized project))
3: seal quickly and let sit anywhere from a couple hours to a full day. (if you are going to be fumigating for a long time, you may want to replace the ammonia every 12 hours or so

4: wear some standard safety precautions. (amonia IS amonia)
