I have coated the spindle whorl with several coats of gloss varnish for extra durability. The spinning surface of the bowl is coated with a special epoxy that forms a durable glass-like surface.
Spindle weight: 0.67oz (19g)
Spindle length: 11" (28cm)
Bowl diameter: 2.75" (7cm)
Being of Russian background myself, I love the Russian traditional painting style called 'Khokhloma'.
Khokhloma is a unique Russian folk art, an expression of national culture, and this is what makes it so popular. Khokhloma gets its bright, happy character from a distinctive matching of scarlet, black and gold.
I painted this spindle and lap bowl using top quality acrylic paints over a maple base that was hand-turned here on Etsy by Joshua Lynch of TexasJeans. This spindle has been tested and balanced for the best spinning performance.
