September 2013: Three years after being given the tree and its initial styling, I carried what I consider to be a 'final' styling, rewiring all of the branches and reworking the deadwood. The deadwood design was accentuated by blackening the hollows, using a gas-torch to burn the wood while the highlights of the deadwood were 'aged'.
