    Nice looking bowl.The texturing and flameing(?) certainly add to it.

    Nice Bowl, the texturing looks good and its great that youve done the base
    a lot of bowls dont have that.

    great Bowl, and I also am impressed with the finish effect you've achieved on the foot.

    Absolutely beautiful. As mentioned above, some information on how you did the fine detail would be great.

    Nice looking bowl smiife, excellent finish and you achieved a good affect with your texturing and off centre turning.....suggest that you experiment with a bit more random approach to the texturing say using two different size burs (i.e. try and avoid straight lines)....

    hi guys,
    thanks for your comments very much appreciated
    firstly the texturing was done with small burr bit in my dremel
    and the colouring was just acrylic paint applied with a brush
    firstly black,alowed to dry then painted with gold acylic and rubbed
    off before it dried,i did have to return it to the lathe to tidy up the edge
    and also vacumn chucked it to remove the bottom and repeat the
    texturing and colouring the same as the top
    kcam thanks for the advice i can see what you mean,the bottom
    is a bit ''in line''isn't it
    i also tried spirit stain before the paint and splashed it ever where
    and ruined another bowl i attempted before this one,any tips on ''how to''
    would be great
    cheers smiife
