52 fixed Fridays #8

52 fixed Fridays #8 fixed axle yoyoWelcome Friday, once again. Yoyo number 8 in the 52 fixed Fridays series is all about the finish. This Carlson yoyo gets a spin art style finish on the lathe by applying water based stain in amber and black with small syringes, then top coated with a gloss spray lacquer. My first attempt didn’t come out well, so I applied a prestain conditioner before the dye. It really helped out a lot to even out all the colors and allow them to flow together a little bit more. 

 

Happy friday!

Colin
