This is a maple turned small platter with an iridescent paint (using an airbrush) over a black lacquer background. This was done as an experiment to visualize the color treatment. It is strictly a decoration and not a functional platter. I welcome your comments as to the overall effect. I do not do many turnings so this is something different for me. The more I looked at it I started to think this would be a good basis for a clock. The disc is about 8” round.

That is stunning. I like it very much, that las few projects I have done I have experimented with dyes. Have been thinking about getting an airbrush. Thanks for the inspiration.You have done a great job and very artistic.

I’ve been toying with doing the exact same project after I saw Tim Yoder’s video yesterday. See it on YouTube here:

He gives a very good step by step.

Dgreen, you did a very nice version. Hope I can do something even close to it.

A suggestion: I would try to use the colors in smaller sections around the bowl. Overall effect looks great.
