Mark Baker demo day - 12/Nov/2011

Mark started by creating a bullet shaped lidded box which is mounted in a formed plywood stand. This was followed by creating a copper and red coloured bowl. The outside was given a distressed look by applying a verdigris wax.

A blackened oak bowl with green interior was then made. Mark showed techniques for texturing the exterior using a wire brush and then by burning with a blowlamp.

He then created a horn/bullet shaped vase demonstrating techniques for colouring with spirit dyes, grain enhancement and the use of iridescent paint.

For the club meeting on 19th November the theme is "anything you like". Later, in December, the Fun Day challenge will be to create a HAT within ten minutes.
