Carrying on with my colouring experiments, this is an Ash bowl, 9", ebonised with Chestnut spray, then the grain filled with silver gild wax.
 

As usual a few in progress photos are on my blog >>here<< 
 
Cheers.

Nice piece Baz
 
And an interesting blog, how do you get on with the sprey ? i have always opted for a stain in the past when i have done this sort of thing. also have you ever tried the gulding paste ?

If it wasn't for the Ash showing in the middle I could believe it was Ebony, very nice indeed Baz.

Great effect Baz bowl looks great well turned.
 
The only thing is I feel the bowl part could have been just a bit larger but thats just me

Thanks for the comments chaps.
 
I like the spray Ralph, i`ve used a few of the Chestnut aerosol products recently & have found them easy to use.
 
I used their aerosol gloss acrylic lacquer on this piece & was very happy with the resulting finish.
 

As for the gild, the silver is by liberon & may be called a paste, it`s just me calling it a wax .
 
 
Thanks again for the comments.

Thanks Bill,
 
I`d not said in my post what timber it is, in fact it`s Chestnut burr, a load of which i was given when 2 trees came down in a storm getting on for 3 years ago.
 
 
 
Cheers.

Now that second one is nice Baz the burr against the plain and clean part sets this off loverly. And from this angle a finish second to none

Thanks again chaps.
 
The second piece i made a few of around November time as Christmas presents.
 
This was my favourite,
 

It was smaller than the previous one, again lacquered but this time a little more understated, which always appeals to me.
 
 
Cheers.
 
 
Baz.

I like them all, but I think I prefer the second one - very understated and elegant. The finish looks superb. It just goes to show what can be done with what probably looks like nothing exciting in its "raw" state. Great jobs Baz.
