Opting for the latter, Brown starts whacking his way through the walnut to create sharp, jagged edges. Afterwards, he pours polyester resin (colored with blue epoxy pigment) over the broken wood and lets it fully cure.
After waiting several days for the wood and resin to be completely dry, he gets back to work. It’s now time to cut and shape the bowl. Because of the resin, Brown’s task is much more challenging.
Brown also admits that, “Hollowing [out the bowl] is a SLOW process and took me close to an hour to complete. Offering perspective on an all wood bowl, this would take about 15-20 minutes.”
