Hi all. It’s been a while since I posted anything, but this new painting technique is too much fun to not share.
The wood is unremarkable Basswood, so it is perfect for this process. After turning the bowl, and adding some groves, I masked off the area that I wanted to paint. I than sprayed that area with high gloss black lacquer. Then using Jo Sonia’s iridescent artist colors, I add small dabs of paint on the black, and using a dry airbrush and low pressure, (30 psi) I move the paint around to form these cosmic clouds. A couple coats of clear lacquer finishes that part. I finish the rest of the bowl with my preferred oil and urethane wipe on finish. The size of this bowl is 7 1/2” in diameter, and 4 1/2” high.

Love the bowl and how you did the cosmic clouds. I have done a couple of projects with the paint and found it allot of fun too. Inspiring to have another go.
