First attempt at piercing
Turned a 9" deep platter with a 2" rim, some insect activity was noticeable, but managed to get the rim under .12" and then laid out a pattern for the leaves and started to pierce a lacy pattern. After the piercing I airbrushed aneline wood dye on to the rim and the interior of the platter and left the back natural. finished it all off with "Rattle Can" lacquer and this is the result. Comments and or critiques more than welcome. top and bottom view.
It is not a mistake! It is a design opportunity.
