    Spin Art Candle Holders

    These are made with baltic birch 1/2 inch plywood glued together to form a block 6" x 6" x 4" and finsihed with waterbourne lacquer. The spin art is done with acrylic paint thinned to almost a water consistancy, base color copper is painted by hand to cover the whole top, then the three shades of blue are added while spinning on the lathe.

    I am a candle fella and I think they look sharp!
