    Candle Holders

    I'm making some candle holders for a wedding gift and finished putting the spin painting texture on the tops of the holders. I got this idea from the UK magazine "Woodturning".

    Added the spin painting finish to the tops of the candle holders in the second picture.

    I will post the finished project when it's completed.

    They came out good. What kind of wood is that?

    I hadn't seen the spin painting done on a turned piece. It looks cool.

    It was fun, the base coat was a metalic silver and then three shades of blue for the spin art over that, if anyone tries this make sure to thin the acrilic paint with at least 50% water for the spin art paint and build a shield or you will have paint everywhere. The wood is Baltic Birch plywood.
