With what did you coat it, I see two colors the black and brown, do you have a link for them. Thank you.

Hello, The darker color are burn marks from laser cutting. These aren't coated with anything, but I would coat them with a wood oil. The wood finishing kit will work: https://www.inventables.com/technologies/wood-finishing-kit
