My mother had picked up a roto-zip I think its called at a yard sale. I had this blank piece left over from another project, so I messed around for a bit and this was the end result. I had been experimenting with some glow in the dark pigments. Mixed them with clear lacquer. Then poured them into the grooves. Let it dry and then rubbed the whole thing with a Sedona red stain. Enjoy.

NIce! The carving is awesome enough, but I like the glow effect a lot.

Pat, I really like this. It’s very creative and a fine eye catcher.
