This Spalted Magnolia hollow form is turned from wood from the old Federal Courthouse in Jackson,MS. The tree was cut down by a subcontractor who was not supposed to do that. I asked my DIL what her favorite color was and got pink as the answer. So I did a light red, then use acrylic paint on the rim for a "crowning " touch.Then we went to visit and I left this in a bag at home. Oh the inside is painted with Black Gesso since spalting was bad enough I could not get a good finish inside so with the black no reflection and difficult to see bottom.

The color is Chestnut Stain (red diluted about 4 ml in 20 ml alcohol). The rim I did someting unusual on the turning by spliting the bead or in other words I dis a modified vee. Then I painted the vee with gold acrylic paint. So yes I do use paint sometimes.

 

Thanks for the comments
