Two photos of a hand mirror where I used Birdseye Redwood with Varigated Black Gold Leafing and a water based Dye (mixture of colors) for the bottom half. The other mirror I used English Sycamore and Woodburned butterflies and flowers coloring them in using some watercolor but mostly colored pencil.

Again, your abilities for color, sculpture and styling are phenomenal. I would like to learn more about coloring the woodburning if you would give some teaching on it. I didn’t realize this could be done.

I am quite impressed. What else do you have up your sleeve you are working on?

As always. I’m in awe of your work. Incredible designs and meticulously crafted details. I hope there’s a gallery show in your future.

These are very nice. Glad to see they came back to be viewed. You can probably thank Martin and his new shuffle feature.

Excellent work Roger!

You have taken beautiful wood and presented it in the most artistic way.That is one of the most frustrating and rewarding things as a woodworker.How do we use a special piece of wood,showing it off but,not compromizing the overall design? It seems that I spend more time working on that issue than actually woodworking.But,I enjoy every minute of it!

You express yourself very well,thanks for sharing,Andy.
