Rivers of Gold

It's been sometime since I made a post, I've not had much to put up. However, my latest project was a joint one, assisted by Richard my son!

Sometime back he called me into his own shed and showed me a strange device constructed from a microwave transformer, the two contacts complete with croc clips looked a little heath robinson, but he knows what he is doing.  The clips were attached to two small nails driven into a flat board about 18" long, a path was made between the nails with a solution of bicarb and the power switched on, the resultant track burned an interesting pattern across the wood.  Thus the idea to use this to decorate a bowl was born, and this is the result.
