This is the second of the Black on Black that I have done. This one is way to light in weight and i bothers me. Not sure of the wall thickness but too light. Piece stands 14 inches tall. Copper paint and copper leaf with patina. Wood is beech and was turned wet to finish

C & C welcome
Ron

Really like the finish on this one Ron, nice shape, if it’s to light it might need a heavier base added outside or inside.

Bob if I have to I was thinking of adding an inch in the bottom of 2 part epoxy. Not sure that would be enough. Magnet in the bottom and a piece of wood with mangnet beneath the surface

Ron, maybe something heavier mixed with or under the inch of epoxy (lead leaf maybe) would make it more secure. It is to nice a piece to add something outside. Interested in seeing what you come up with. Cheers.

MCOFrog My wife and I have wintered the last 4 years in Tucson and this past winter I went to Mata Ortiz Mexico. There they do a lot of the black on black pottery. I love the stuff but it is hard to do with wood. I will continue to try

You are doing a great job so far. I used to dable a bit in pottery, the original B on B was done with a polishing stone so that the parts you used the stone on polished up and the other stayed the flat black. When I played with the pottery they made a waxy paint that you would paint over the flat black and when you put the shiny black on it wouldn’t stick to those area’s so when it was fired the second time you would get the two types of black.

I wonder if you used some pin-striping tape and masked off the flat black on the wood then put down a coat of glossy finish if that would create the same effect. Anyway just typing out loud hope to see some more of your work, I really do love it.

The process for doing this is shiny paint on first. Lay out my pattern and apply frisket to mask the area of my pattern and paint over it all with chalk board paint. I will be doing more and hope to improve as i move on

Honored. This piece was just picked as Turning of the Week on Wood Turners Unlimited. Only the 3rd time in the past couple of years that this has happened. Having fun. Gives the inspiration to do more
