After turning I thought the spalting and color wasn’t very attractive (actually ugly) - so I decided to cover it up with some pyrography and Gilders Paste (3 colors + gold). Learned a few things on this one….like what not to do.
Thanks for your thoughts... appreciate it. Are you referring to the "dots" on the foot (if so, I thought it tied together with the stippling on the vessel) or the burn line between the vessel and foot? As stated I learned a few things on this one. I didn't plan on the foot - but I hollowed too deeply and wanted to continue the line on the form. I felt the base would have been a little too small for stability so I turned the tenon into a foot. Thanks again for your comment.
