Another gift idea

Here's one example of some candle holders I just finished. I made three pair. Each pair is a slightly different shape and color. They are about 4" dia. and 3" high.

Absolute beautiful!
Do you paint with the piece on the lathe or off?  What paint did you use on this piece?  They really compliment each other.  Such a great gift... Smiley Smiley

Kathy: I finish the turning and seal the part with dewaxed shellac. Final "sanding" is a brown scotchbrite pad with the lathe turned on. Painting is done off-lathe. I paint the base first and, after drying, I paint the body. I use "Old Village" colors. The pictured piece is "Bayberry". I mount the piece on the lathe chuck and use it to hold the piece whilst painting the bands (acrylics). Afterwards, I give it a coat of Krylon semi-gloss, then a wipe of black stain to accent the grooves and leave a little patina. After drying and a final wipe, I finish with Krylon matte finish. Afterwards, a coat of paste wax, and it's done.
