Piece #455 – Sycamore with Calcite, Howlite Inlay – 5″ by 7″


A Sycamore Urn turned on the lath. At the transition of top and sides is a red Calcite bead. After the piece came off of the lath it was sanded to 400 grit sandpaper. A one pound cut of dewaxed shellac sealed the vessel. Next it was spray painted with black latex. When that cured it was brushed over with Behlen’s Rock Hard Varnish.

After curing several days it was ready to apply the fake Gold Leaf. To see this process go to http://youtu.be/BKY2Rj1snJs.
