To start the finishing process I sand to 1500 grit. At this time I airbrush aniline dyes with a denatured alchohol carrier. I then stabilize the wood globe with thin super glue, once dry I resand to 1500 grit. The finials are also sanded to 1500 grit before assembly. After assembly the ornament is sprayed overall with one coat of gloss laquer.
This piece is 7 inches in height and 2.25 inches in width.
