over a month ago I turned a hollow form that was still wet and moved dramatically. I thought it looked quirky but lacked something. so having got the airbrush and compressor I had to have a go at painting the form. I put it back on the lathe and ebonised it. then painted it with yes you got it JO Sonje iridescent. they are the same colour as I used on other forms but applied differently. the first photo is from when I turned it at first. all comments welcome.dsc_6735.jpgdsc_6733.jpgdsc_6731.jpgdsc_6728.jpg

That was Dennis that made this piece Ged. I agree it is a nice piece, having seen this elsewhere I have already commented on it.

Excellent recovery Dennis, well done.
