Another experiment with colour done using ebonising spray and Jo Sonja paints.

This is something totally different for me but I am still playing with colour and texture.

This is 7 1/4” tall and 3 1/2” at it’s widest and made from Holly

I have tried to photograph this all the way round to show the different hues in the colours

Thank you guys, I just enjoy making things and try to make them to the best of my ability. Most of what I have made is through being self taught, reading books and watching video's. If I can help someone then I will always try my best to help as that is something I have always found in all of the forums that I use.
I joined here not to show off but hopefully be able to find any answers to router questions that I may have as there are many very talented people here. As you may know I use routers mainly for my toy making and have built my own table.

Each colour is added separately so a little time consuming

Derek I was merely joking about the showing off part , but I keep on forgetting how things can get misinterpreted on forums with a mature audience such as this .
We all appreciate you sharing your work with us , and you have surpassed many as you've demonstrated some very special skills . Keep em coming

Great vase Derek. How do you apply the colors? Is it sprayed or hand applied? Did you hand carve the peddle effect on the vase, or is the separation a natural opening? It looks similar to a tulip flower.
