Have you ever had a chunk of wood you just didn’t know what to do with? This turning started out as a hollow vessel and it turned into a bit of a freak of nature. I kinda threw in everything but the kitchen sink just to see what came out. Soooo after the hollowing I dumped black dye into the cavity and rolled it around until everything was covered. Then I hand brushed the gold flake paint. Then I carved the bottom…then I polished it on my buffer using multiple different finishes. I need to take a torch to it to get rid of the residue which shows up as white. It currently resides at the very back of my china cabinet…behind many other better looking turnings.
