The first Made from Oak and decorated with acrylic artist paint on the inside and Ebonising spray on the outside It stand 6” X 3”. I made a router jig and used that to produce both the upright and slots around the circumference.

The second is a small hollow form 3” X 4 3/4” with an 1/2” hole sanded inside and out to 400grit then textured on the outside finished with ebonising spray and dry brushed with pink iridescent paint Ok I know it does not look pink

I really like the purple (Oops! Pink???) turned/carved piece. I hope to one day have my lathe set up again so I can try to do things like this!

Nice to see the interesting features you added to your turnings Derek. I’ve been interested in routing flutes, spirals, and circles on some small turnings, just haven’t got around to it. Same with dye, have some but haven’t tried it.
