another little project finished tonight. I found a part turned bowl of laburnum so decided to turn and paint it. so here are the photos of it. the other comment I would like to say is a few weeks ago I seen on FB about taking my photos of my turnings in a white bath. ( no not full of water) so this is what I have done with the photos here.dsc_6743.jpgdsc_6749.jpgdsc_6751.jpgdsc_6754.jpg

Thread: painted hollow fortm
08/07/2017 22:52:16

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

  1. had an afternoon in the shed and got some turning done. decided that the log of oak that was laying there was needed turning in to a hollow form its moisture content when I started was 30%. So I knew I was going to get wet doing it. it turned out to be a rather good project to do. it is 10x6 1/2" in size and I went rather close in arears to going through. looking inside the form you can see light through in places. just hope it doesn't crack on me now I have brought it in doors. the finial is from a bit of be burbinger and was rather powdery to turn. finished of with 2 coats of lacquer. all comments welcome.dsc_5941.jpgdsc_5936.jpgdsc_5928.jpgdsc_5927.jpg
