Two 12-inch pine platters decorated with iridescent paints. I did a smaller maple platter a few months ago …
Click for details
... and decided to do some more when I came across some dry pine planks that were 2-inches thick and over 12-inches wide.

These platters were inspired by projects posted on YouTube by Tim Yoder ( https://youtu.be/XOyG2vyBnk4 ) and Gary Lowe ( https://youtu.be/_tMdQ3p5dqs ).

I turned the platter and used a gloss black spray paint to ‘ebonize’ it. Working with the iridescent paint is a blast!

You’re just having too much fun Gerry, but the results are beautiful. Those are really unique.

Gerry, this piece is such an outstanding piece. It is a wonderful eye catcher and I love the colors.

I liked ‘em before, I like this one, now. I’ve had my lathe 7 years now. Time to make a project. Even though I retired 2.5 years ago, I’m still working down the list of things to do. The MIL’s house is almost finished and ready to rent. That’ll help a lot.

Both. It requires a special paint, applied with a rather unusual technique. The Youtube videos by Tim Yoder ( https://youtu.be/XOyG2vyBnk4 ) and Gary Lowe ( https://youtu.be/_tMdQ3p5dqs ) will give you a complete picture of what it takes and how it is done.
