Thread: Coloured Sycamore Bowl

Hi Julian

Many thanks for your kind comment. I had never heard of the Preval System, must have a look, and thanks for the info.

Hi Derek, thank you for the Welcome and comment.

All the Texturing was carried out using the Sorby Texturing Tools, including the micro.

I have only just really started with Airbrushing, and this was my second attempt, i had heard that using Cans could be expensive, thats why i went with the compressor, and made sure it had a tank to hold the pressure.

The Complete piece was covered in Inks, after texturing was completed.

It has been a significant length of time since i posted anything so here goes!!

I took delivery of a Airbrushing kit some weeks ago and decided to have a go and created this, of course inspired by Nick Agar. I used Molotow Aqua Inks, which are much friendly to use than stains and are food colourant based, which can be used in pens, plus other such as Airbrushing. C&C Welcome and thank you for looking.

Apart from the answers above, i am not sure if you have seen these two videos, the first is by Lyle Jamieson, and the second by Andy Coates, which you may find useful (Andy Coates)

Also have you searched the AWGB for groups in your area, there is two maps available, one for Branches, and one for associates.


I hope you manage to sort out your problem

Thank you Derek for your kind comments, they are much appreciated

I have another piece of this timber left.

The first photo is a close up of the grain.

The form is made from Spalted Beech, which measures 170mm x 80mm, sanded down to 600 grit and then buffed and polished on the lathe,

C&C Welcome and many thanks for looking

Hi To all

I just thought i would add a couple of my latest projects, C&C Welcome as always, and thank you for looking.

This one is based on a Mark Sanger piece, made from Sycamore, with a Spalted Beech Lid and Ebony finial

Sycamore Lidded Box

This one is made from Spalted Sycamore, the timber was found in a reject pile sourced from my local supplier.

It was hollowed with Kelton Hollowers and the Crown Revolution.

Hi Derek

A lovely piece of wood that would have been difficult to turn, however you did this very well.

For hollowing i use the Kelton hollowers, and the Crown revolution,, both do the job admirably but it all depends on your budget etc.

Thank you for your kind comments Gents.

The paints are very easy to use, however it is advisable to use them in moderation as you tend to get more colour from them as in pictures 1-3.

I did take photo`s of a couple of the stages, will try and dig them out, and create something

My aplogies, it has been such a long time since i posted anything on here!!, so ithought i would post a few of my latest works, all made from Sycamore of various sizes, all using Jo Sonja Irridescent paints of varying colours. My favourite is the top one!!

C&C Welcome, and thank you for looking

Hi Dennis

Very nice looking clocks, i especially like the natural edge ones.

With regards your last clock and the tile, did the tile crack with the movement of the wood? and what glue did you use?

Thread: Ebonised Hollow form
02/02/2012 19:55:54
Hi All
Many thanks for your kind comments, i tried to reply earlier, computers, don`t you just love them!!
Ron, i obtained the butterflies from a craft shop, cost was £1.50 for a sheet
Alan, if the piece was in your hand you would think it was porcelain, the wife loved it, as soon as she saw it, and she is my biggest critic. It took as long to finish as turning the item. Ii used Chestnut Ebonising laquer, but i have heard that you can use Matt black car spray (not Gloss), which has the same effect, but a lot cheaper.
Derek, i understand what you say, and i am sure we all experiment, with different techniques, it is the only way we learn our fantastic hobby.
I am sure the next one will be much better, and i can assure you i learnt a lot during the process of colouring with this piece.
Thank you again

Evening Steve.
Is there particular tools that are giving problems on your face plate/chuck work, as to me it sounds like a tooling issue as others have suggested.
