Woodturning a Milliput Mosaic Bowl

Woodturning a Milliput Mosaic Bowl
This video was first published on my channel almost 3 years ago and showed how I coloured some Milliput turquoise to make some tiles for a mosaic design. I deleted the video a short time afterwards because I wasn’t sure how safe the pigment I used was. I was asked at Makers Central 2018 by several people about what happened to this video as the bowl was on display at the show.
As Milliput are now developing a turquoise putty, I thought it was about time I re-edited the old video and published it again so apologies if you have already seen it. Hopefully it will be new to many of you as I didn’t have many subscribers back then.Some of the original camera work and editing leaves a lot to be desired, hopefully I have now made it a bit more watchable.

  1. Beautiful job my friend ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ

  2. Delighted to see this video back, such a beautiful bowl. There is something so satisfying and relaxing about watching you turning bowls on the lathe.

  3. Very nice! Hadnโ€™t seen the original. Just out of curiosity, is it possible to custom dye white milliliput yourself?

  4. Never saw the original but glad you decided to resurrect this video. Loved the colours, another great project. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

  5. Thank you, Jim. I seem to remember the original video. One of the joys of using Milliput is that it looks so unattractive when applied but when it has set the pleasure of turning and revealing the pattern are great. You mentioned missing your old Jet lathe. I recently had to buy a part for my Wivamac lathe and was surprised to find it was manufactured in 2004. I'm trying to persuade my wife to allow me to purchase a new machine but she tells me my excuses for doing so are pathetic:-(.

  6. Silly question: Why didnโ€™t you cut the squares out while the putty was still soft? This piece as always is so lovely. I just love it.
