Here is a Nick Agar style Viking Sunset Bowl that I just finished. 8″ diameter by 2″ tall. I really enjoyed making this piece. My students are also having a good time making these in my “Woodturning Workshop” studio classes.
I saw Nick make one of these in a demo at 2018 Totally Turning Symposium. I then purchased his “Viking Sunset Bowl Kit” from Chroma Craft. I also really enjoyed seeing Nick on the 2018 Woodturning Cruise in Norway.
You need an airbrush to apply the stains and finishes in the kit. At Totally Turning I saw Nick use Paasche brand airbrushes. On the Woodturning Cruise, Nick used cheap $20 Harbor Freight airbrushes. Nick uses more than one airbrush at a time. One for each color and sealer.
Note: If you want a good Binh Pho style airbrush then you need to get something like an Iwata Hi-Line HP-CH for $250. Then you have spend a lot of time cleaning it because it was big bucks.
After doing some research I decided to go with a $80 Paasche VL airbrush. Below, is what I ordered from Amazon. All prices are on 12/2018.
I really like the Passche VL airbrush. It is easy and fast to clean. I load each of the glass jars with a different color stain or sealer. Then I can easily switch back and forth between the colors and sealer by swapping jars. I use the cup that comes with the airbrush and a lab squeeze bottle of denatured alcohol to clean the brush between colors or sealer.
