All I can say is that it is beautiful! If you didn’t show your burning tool, I would have thought it was drawn on. It’s fantastic the detail you achieved!

Man! That’s gorgeous. Pam’s Xmas gift of a burning set up is now a definite. She’ll freak when she sees what can be done with talent and patience and lots of practice.
