Base ,Purple Heart. The finish is min wax wood sheen with just a little stain mix, then a wax with carnauba. A small Boxwood cicada on a leaf, table top sculpture or a necklace, to wear.

Andrew I use a chamois wheel on a foredom, it has about 5 layers of chamois, each one is cut so it works into the cuts and around all of the carvings, I spin it on the wax and then spin it on what I am waxing, it heats up enough to bring a good shine to what I am working on. Check out the pics.

Congratulations for carving those legs!  That work is tricky to do.  Well done with stylizing the characteristics of the cicada.

That is a good way to share a small carving.  Is the purple heart base part of the pendant?  Show us how it will actually hang?

Thank you Ed, that is a fine way to share such work with friends and admirers.  So much better than sitting somewhere on a shelf, waiting to be found by lookers.

Is the purple heart wood a little stand created for the piece for its display?  Good idea.
