My thanks to Gary Lowe and Tim Yoder on Youtube for their inspiration to create this bowl/platter/art piece. When I first saw their Cosmic Clouds I was struck by them so gathered the items needed over a few weeks and finally found a wide oak board two inches thick so I could give it a go.
My first attempt at the iridescent painting was foiled by the wrong mixing medium that I had picked up so I turned off the paint layer and redid it with the correct solution. Voila! It was fun and ended up better than I had hoped.
My version is smaller than those by Gary and Tim. It’s only 10” across. I’m still on the look out for some wider, light colored wood.
This project was a blast to make and the result even impressed SWMBO. This may get to stay in the house.
I’d love to hear what you think. Thanks for looking.
