Well here is step two in Process. For the last few evenings I have been coming home from work and texturing this piece. I am using a souix right angle drill and a kutzal silver ball burr. I texture the surface with the burr some cuts are deep and some are shallow. I want the cuts to be totally random. It is impossible to get the cuts perfect and uniform. You don’t want to try it will not look good so cut randomly. I then high light the edges of the cuts with a tourch. Be carefull not to create to much heat so you don’t cause an expansion crack. After this I rub out the excess burning from the tourch with a wire pad. I then airbrush the laquer over the surface. Process three will be the coloring steps.

I like everything you did with this piece, but I also wanted to complement you on getting such a fantastic shape on the piece. It is really special.
