    Four-color Acrylic Stopper

    This time, it was a planned pour using red, white, blue and black. I started by pouring some black into the mold, then some blue, white and red. I wanted to achieve a swirl effect. This is a plain teardrop stopper - nothing hidden.

    Good job Bill, in fact I'm thinking about giving a stopper a try, but applying a small carving on it instead of a turned piece.
    Best regards,
    Toni

    Thanks, guys!

    Toni, if you haven't seen it already, take a look at Ruth Niles' Gallery Page. The imagination of those folks is amazing. I'm just using small items to try to develop better turning technique for now.

    Thanks Bill, I did look at it and you are right, the imagination that those guys put in them is inmense. Great source of inspiration for anyone, specially turners.
    Best regards,
