This is a large mesquite bowl with bisbee blue turquoise and morenci copper inlay . It measures 11 3/4 inches across and 8 inches tall I started with the bowl being sanded to 400 grit . Then I wiped it down with a tack rag . Once it is dust free , I sprayed a thin coat of deft sanding sealer to the bowl . It dryed in 30 min . I sanded with 400 grit between coats Until the desired smoothness is aquired . Then it is wiped with a tack rag . I then spray a coat of deft gloss lacquer over the sanding sealer . I apply 4 coats as a minimum of coats and more as needed. Then you have a beautiful gloss finish .
