Maple Spiral Carved and Painted Bowl

By Wes Jones - Woodturner - Lawrenceville, GA, Woodturner at in Lawrenceville, GA.

This Big Leaf Maple Burl bowl was handcarved with coves and raised beads on the outside.  The beads were stippled by hand with a small spherical pyrographic burning pen.  Then the coves and beads were painted with 2 coats of metallic blue and green acrylic paint.  Finally, the piece was finished with a wipe-on oil finish and polished by buffing.
