Blue painted platter

OK maybe it's not blue but if you mix blue and green you'll get this color. :) I thought I would play with my router on this project. I used an ink brayer after routing to put the paint on.

It's a roller they use to spread ink on raised surfaces like block printing. It's like a solid rubber roller. You roll it in the ink and then roll it across the wood and it will only cover the high places. It's fun. On a platter like this I could have sprayed the wood with one color after routing it. This would cover all the wood. Then use the Brayer to cover just the high areas and you would have 2 colors on the piece.

Good concept! And if you tape a mask with cutouts over the bowl you can drop in spot colors wherever you want.

Gary I'm still new at airbrushing but it opens up a whole new ball game. You can not only mask off areas but you can do multiple masks. it's amazing. I need a better air brush. I spend more time cleaning this one than I do working with it. It's a Paasche but it's really old.

You can do masks with the brayer technique too.

I love it.

My eyes keep fooling me on the center. Is it dished or flat?
