Very beautiful turning.
How interesting is that outer ring design … can you give a little detail about material and process?

The whole maple platter was turned and then the eggshells were applied. Then a thin layer of Liquitex Modeling Paste is applied over the eggshells and left to dry. Once dry, the eggshell mosaic is sanded down.

I love seeing a combination of unusual materials. The eggshells give a very antique look. Thanks for sharing.

Are those actual egg shells, How did you attach them, do they have a top finish, Incredible for a first time project. Bet you have lots that you haven’t shown us.
