I had a request for making "Aums" by Tiffany Floyd in Evansville, IN. I made two card holders for her and as usual it lead me to the bigum. The symbol is cut from "donated" 3/4 plywood, the backer is 3/8 inch plywood and the frame is pine pallet wood. This aum has a charcoal glaze attached to a texturized backer. The frame has was painted and then distressed. The entire piece has a coat of hand brushed lacquer for a clean finish.
