>This started out as a try at percing by burning. That quickly proved a much much thinner turning was needed.

A little while back Jennifer posted a picture of a bowl which had a bunch of random burn marks on the rim. I liked the way the burning looked so I thought I would give it a try.

This is the result. A 13 1/2" platter with a 2" wide rim. The burning was done with two pens. When one pen would get to hot to hold I would switch to the other pen. When both pens were to hot I would stop. I had three sessions before the burning was done.
