Wire Brush Technique

Jennifer@Indy.USA
>Hi Everybody,

Good weekend to you all. I'm curious about using a wire brush technique. I've seen bowls that have been wire brushed and I like the look. Sometimes it's done after scorching and I think I've seen it done without scorching too. Does anybody have any hints, tips or even a resource for some information on the topic. Here are the questions I have....

1. What type of wire brush do you use? Size, type of wire, etc.

2. stiffness of wire?

3. Do you sand at all before wire brushing?

4. Do you wire brush while the piece is still on the lathe? At slow speed I'm assuming?

Thanks for any tips!

Jennifer
