Texturing
« on: January 09, 2021, 02:24:28 PM »
I used to think of texturing as using one of the various specialist tools then I came across a turner in Aussie who specialisesin it using all sorts of tools and got hooked. Like so many things watch the expert and it looks simpe untl you try yourself. Frtunately lockdown (orevious and tbhis one) mean I have time to 'play' and experiment and so have been digging out old pieces that I am not oberly happy ith and working on them. Once in a while I do something that I am (temprarily) pleased with and this is one of them.  vdery simpke boring pear wood bowl, it measures 10 1/2" (265mm) diameter with a rim of 2 1/2" (63mm) I marked the rim off into 8 segments and pi[ut a different texture in each segment. The rim was then stained black to contrast ith the pinkish tinge of the bowl. Hard to get good images of the textures but hopefully they will give an idea of the various patterns etc.

That looks really good, what did you use to do the texturing? Is the black stain, pyrography or what?

I have a selecton of different burrs which I use in a micro drill at different speeds, angles etc. The blackening is simply a black stain applied, dried then buffed.

Gorgeous texturing! It frames the smooth bowl nicely.

Never thought about putting all the different effects on a single piece like a bowl great job.
I just have a piece of wood which I did the same thing with just to see the different effects I could produce

Thank you. Have to admit lockdown for us has given us time to eperiment with ideas and different ways of doing things.
