« Part 3: Segmented Abstract Model - Finish Applied Part 4 of Work in Progress series Part 5: playing with color »

I glued up these little segmented candy dishes quite some time ago… now seemed like a good time to turn them.

One of the things I wanted to do with these candy dishes was to make similar segmented patterns using two different sizes of segments… basically to give my self some reference on future designs.

The first candy dish has 61 segments using 10 segments per ring

The second candy dish has 121 segments using 20 segments per ring

I’ve got both sanded down to 320 grit. I haven’t quite decided what I want to do for a finish. I know I’m going to probably use a gloss wipe on poly… but i haven’t decided on a stain yet.

now if these were only full of m&m’s I’d be a happy man!

they’re great. I agree tho, they are missing something – lots of M&Ms :-)

Your work is superb! Everything you make has a “signature”.
This one showcases the segments in a different way… a very pleasing to the eye way!

Nice job Darryl. You must have a lot of patience for the segmented stuff.

Have your say...
