Colored Pencil Bowl

– Posted in: Videos

FInally got some colored pencils cast in Alumilite and turned into a bowl! I wanted to do something a little different for this one, and I wanted to keep all the pencils intact if possible.

I used Alumilite Clear Slow Set for the blank, and kept it dead clear. Overall, I’m pretty happy with how the blank and bowl turned out. For a list of materials and tools I use, check out my resources page: http://nvwoodwerks.com/tools/ 

Thanks to Heath Knuckles for the idea to try out the negative rake scraper! Make sure to check out Heath’s channel for some awesome hybrid blank turnings: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC7ymj9d5HO-sLh2AnyILAiQ

I also want to thank Nick Zametti for all the inspiration! Nick is the colored pencil resin casting master, make sure to check out his channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC3-0S7vXfwYY2jj5EkMpymA

    How did you keep pencils off outside of your mold so there was a layer of resin around the outside of the bowl before the pencils?

      I just laid them against the wall and taped them, the curvature of the bowl mold keeps resin on the outside of the pencils
