My gut tells me this pipe isn’t starting to color after around 10 bowls but the walls are really thin where the reverse tear drops are. It even looks to be getting a reddish hue inside those tear drops. Picks of new and now:04DF2E0F-4642-44E9-8D92-69C3B588B22B.jpeg46A7D91F-9991-4792-A2C0-D65854F3C815.jpegF963BF1B-71B8-4D3E-A7FF-1EF8821DEEF4.jpeg
In the last pic the tear drop on the stem still has a little bright white spot that makes the red hue stand out. In person it’s even more noticeable and that’s no matter the lighting so it’s definitely not just a shadow lol.

What you're seeing right now is just the wax discoloring from heat. The real coloring will start at the heel after a couple of hundred smokes.

Thank you for complimenting the pipe, it’s little imperfections make it unique. I have been smoking this pipe more then my rest but mostly because it smokes so well and yes to also get it to eventually color. I’ll just smoke it and forget about the coloring until it happens. I’ll try to post a pic here once a month or so to track its progression without the pics getting buried under a couple hundred posts lol.
