March Demonstration
Dennis Tholen
Color and Texture


This demonstration and discussion will cover how to enhance your turnings by adding both color and texture. Step-by-step instructions on how to create texture on a weed pot with a Dremel tool will be demonstrated utilizing a simple multi-step process. Then, color will be applied to the surface to further enhance the texture. This will be a most enjoyable weekend project for any skill level turner.
