OH, boy! Outstanding, Derek.

Hi, sorry I missed you. I have gone to find myself, but if I return before I get back, please ask me to wait.

The vase alone is a work of art and the finish really makes it. Well done.

Derek,

Beautiful turning and the perfect piece to try out this finish.

Very well done!

Mike

The colour is applied by hand using the end of a paint brush and crumpled up newspaper and it is just tapped on starting from the centre of a colour working outwards which helps to fade it into the next. You do need to dab some of the paint off before starting or it will end up to thick and more of a solid colour which is what you don't want.

I hope that is clear enough

Fun is playing in the workshop

For some one who hates the "finishing" process I think I can handle this one. Appreciate the tip.
