Butterfly Trays: Maple Wood and Antique Cast Bronze

I have already made a few of these, but you keep asking for more -so here they are: four empty-your-pockets trays made out of maple wood carved bowls. They all follow the same idea, but each one is unique.

The bodies of these butterflies are antique cast bronze keyhole plates and the antenna are made out of antique cast bronze pull handles, all rather ornate.
I have coloured the bowls with off-white, turquoise and light gray colours, then distressed the surface to get that lovely 'shabby-chic' look. They are all sealed with clear varnish and polished to provide a soft, satin finish.

Measures: 26cm at their widest point, around 16cm long.
