Since I started painting the Red Cloud Pipe Axe, it is obvious harder than painting a flat surface. This is a personal size version of Red Cloud's pipe. The stem, not including brass mouth piece is only 12 1/2 inches and 3/4 inch thick. A round surface can be tough painting compared to a flat one.
The Tee Pee on end
I used artist's acrylic paint with gel paste medium thinned by adding a mixture 1 part gloss varnish (brush on), 1 part water. Some professional artists who paint on canvas use that method for seamless painting. Also makes layering possible, paint becomes more or less translucent, with light optical properties.
It depends on the angle of light, the type of light source, direction viewed to see things. The brush strokes, the curve can really change the look as turning the pipe.
Keep turning the pipe...
Some paint on the extended wing is still wet, some brightness will fade out as dry.
May have to do some fine touch up on that wing if too much bright spots.
The details are so small, they actually don't show so much, on the pipe because photo is much larger than real size.
There is more work to be done, on the stem after the Eagle. Want to have a beautiful rainbow with clouds.
It will be well worth the effort once finished.
A feather is below the Eagle.
The more I pray with the pipe, the more the painting gets finished!

Yeah, take time to finish job on that special Peace Pipe Axe. So, that'll looks great when it's dry well.
Wado ("Thank you" in Cherokee) for sharing!
I got my Cherokee Peace Pipe with real Deer golden leathers and alot of work on the beads job for 3 months that my friend Annette Elkins Brown who made them for me that I asked her what I wanted colors on the Eagles and Feathers Beadwork (my Eagle design (Sioux's symbol that Cherokees borrow from them) for my Ceremony Indian name is White Eagle!) with the Deer leather & fringe on the Peace Pipe, lighter with deer leather cover with fringe, Eagles and feathers on the beadwork with black background. I'm finish sanded the wooden Peace Pipe and the Deer's horns "V" shape and one Deer's horn stem on the top for smoke in thru the wooden pipe with dark Oak finish and the horns little light color, long story! I'll take more photos and post a new thread (Topic) in this board soon for you and our members to see my job on the Peace Pipe & Deer's horns and Annette's job on the Deer leathers with fringes, Eagles & Feathers and black background colorful beadwork job on them for me.

I went there sometimes and ordered her to made Deer leathers and beads job for my Cherokee Peace Pipe and I bought some items from her. She is a wonderful job on those Peace Pipe and her stuff!

twoblades: Hi Chuck. I am Cherokee and we use the word A'ho as the closing to our prayer. Wado is "western dialect Cherokee" but we use it in the "Eastern dialect" as well because it is recognized.

chuck: Also, I have read that the Cherokee do not use this word A'HO as thank you, but uses the word wado.

chuck: I have studied the word A'HO and have read in studies that various tribes use this word as greeting, thank you, or ending in prayer. However in further study I read that this is not true and that this word is not real or used. Any thoughts?
