This is the completed vase that I made when I was demonstrated the modification of the tailstock for easy drilling in my last post.I wanted to try using analine dye. I wasn’t too impressed with my last experience of using fabric dye. I cut and burnt rings, like I did on my first vase, it looked good just like that and almost chickened out of using the dye. My first idea was to make the entire top curved section blue, still the 3 red stripes, but in caution settled on the thin blue stripes. it may have over powered it. I ususaly use WOP but wanted to keep the birch as white as possible, so used spray diamond coat with the idea to use BLO as a top coat. Was happy with just the diamond coat. It is very slick and smooth. I applied it with the lathe turning at a slow speed.
This picture taken with no flash. May be better?
I got the side wall alittle thin in one place, could see light coming through the side when I looked inside, sun was on it. Thanks for looking, a not so desirable friend found it quite interesting. Wish he would go else where as he was interested in my strawberries.
