#76 Wood Turning and Embellishing an Ancient Shield with Metal Reactive Paints

#76 Wood Turning and Embellishing an Ancient Shield with Metal Reactive Paints
For this week’a wood turning project I hark back to ancient times and turn a shield from sycamore and embellish it with Modern Masters Reactive Paints – you know, the ones that tarnish.

It was nice to get back to some artistic wood turning to make this piece on the lathe.

  1. Excellent. I am from Greece and we donโ€™t have here a special store for woodworkers. Can you propose me a web store to purchase beautiful colors like this you use to your video?

  2. I think you have captured the feel of an antique shield very well. Its very nice.
    thanks

  3. I think this is the only one of your pieces that I don't like. For me, the covering of the entire thing with paint has totally lost the fact that this is a beautiful piece of sycamore. It could pass for an old bin lid or something. Much prefer part painted pieces with stunning timber on show too ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. That is awesome work….if only I could find something like this while metal detecting!!โ€ฆ
    A good insight of using paints on wood..1 question, would you get the same results on most light woods??
    Another thoroughly enjoyable video Martin, cheers ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ˜Š

  5. Hi Martin , I love watching your videos, two ?is your finish available in the USA?I have use of only my right hand could I use a Sorby texturing tool with one hand?

  6. Absolutely stunning, definitely going to invest in a texturing tool, have been unsure about one until now.
    You mentioned the metallic paints were from modern masters, is it a specific type as a google search heeded numerous different results.
    Thanks for the great content as always.
    All the best.

  7. Sorry Martin, but I do not like this. It is only my opinion and it would not be right if we all loved the same things, but as I said I do not like it. I did however like the texturing of the piece. All the best to you and your family for 2017 and I look forward to many more turnings that I will like.

  8. Nice video, Martin.
    The shell looks great, it has antiques.
    Where metals need years, you have done within 2 days. ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€

  9. came out really nicely! the colors are spectacular….

    someone gifted me one of those spiraling tools and i've been kinda unhappy with how turns out….I think i may be running it TOO fast…..will need to fiddle with it some more I think…..
