Here is my how-to on painting with a centrifuge. I hope you learn some great tips and tricks from this tutorial!
I finished my Unicorn Spit project a while back, I was excited today when Unicorn Spit shared it on their Face Book page. I had a good time working on this project, but there were a couple of details on painting with the Centrifigue that I left out in my original post. You can read more about it here.
These were the colors I used, they are called Dragon’s Belly and Blue Thunder.
Love those names!
I finished my table more than once. This photo is of my first attempt which I decided I didn’t really care for, so I flipped the table top over and painted it again.
When it was all done, I finished the table top with a coat of Linseed Oil. You can also use hemp oil or Tongue Oil. I happened to have Linseed on hand, so that’s what I used to seal the stain.
This is my make-shift centrifuge. I drilled a hole in the middle of the table and put it on this contraption to paint it. It is comprised of a vice, a giant nail and a couple of washers. The milk crate is just to lift it up higher so it was easier to work with.
I have the video ready, it basically shows how to spin the table top and use a steady hand with a paint brush to get the circular effect while the table top spins.
I used both the green and blue stains, dipping the brush in each one and working with it until I got the desired effect that I was looking for. I could have played with this thing forever, it’s rather mesmerizing don’t you think?
