New "Thailand" MOD Spartan

This one took me forever.... I took three pair of selfmade wooden scales to Thailand in an effort to find someone who was able to paint them in a traditional Thai style... To make a long story short.... I couldn't find anyone and I almost gave up, but I found a nice piece of teak wood for 40 Baht and it gave me an idea... I bought two crystals (blue Topaz) and wanted to integrate the crystals in the teak scales. It was a risk, because I've never done this before, but it turned out much more beautiful then I imagined... After engraving the scales, I added acrylic paint to the scales and wiped away the paint afterwards. some paint stays behind in the engravement and you get a nice, unique print...
