Flame texturing of Highly Figured Wood with Art Liestman

Date: February 22nd, 2021

Time: 5-7 pm Mountain Time

Description: In turning a small bowl, I will show my technique for “flame texturing” highly figured wood. The textured wood can either be left “as is” or coloured with multiple layers of acrylic paints using a dry brush technique. As an example, I turn, flame texture, and colour a “popcorn bowl” which ends up looking like stone. Burning and dry brushing are shown in detail, and a doughnut chuck is described and used. This should be understandable and within the abilities of any of your members.
