    Elegant Beauty Chiyogami

    In a Titanium Gold / Black Titanium plating.
    Turned, sanded to 400x, buffed with super fine steel wool and polished with Hut Ultra Gloss.
    Got this blank from Penl8the (Branden) this morning and just couldn't wait to turn.
    Great work Branden and Thank You!

    Wow, that is simply wonderful!

    Looks like Japanese paper or cloth

    Thanks Michael,

    I believe it is a paper material that Braden gets at Michaels Crafts.
