Strong Set wooden handle

Hello friends. Here I show a restoration made ​​by "El Druida" for me. I bought on ebay this old brush and sent it to him a couple months ago to restore. The handle finish is is made with several layers of pure tung oil, and finished with a mixture of beeswax and carnauba wax, El Druida's secret blend.

The look is rustic, with a satin finish, semigloss, which combines well with the subtle repainting of the letters. A lovely little brush.
