I got round today to trying some silver gild wax on this ebonised Ash bowl, i started with an Ash blank fixed to the lathe via a face plate.
The base shape of the bowl was turned including a spigot to allow the bowl to be reversed & held on the lathe by chuck jaws in expansion mode.
With the base sanded & a coat of cellulose sanding sealer applied the bowl was reversed chucked, the top shape of the bowl turned, sanded & sealed. I then masked the small bowl ready for spraying.
The rim was then sprayed with Chestnut`s ebonising spray.
The masking tape was removed, a little sanding was necessary then the gild wax was applied to the grain.
Finally a few photos of it polished.
