A few new turned bowls

Finally painted and oiled a few little turned bowls. Both only about 6" across.  I busted out a lot of blanks and started turning in succession (which for me is one a day), and it helped me with technique.  I still struggle to get a smooth inner surface, and the rim is always a tricky bit.  I am really digging the blue coming through the red on the bottom bowl.  Makes the read feel deep.  Like a "reinforced red."  Also, the surface of sanded milk paint is lovely to the touch.

  1. Still liking the paint. The oil and wax topcoat seems to bring it to life. And I'm sure it makes it much more pleasant to touch.
