Make Your Own Paperweight
Another great creation Mike. It looks terrific. Your notes are very thorough - only wish I had Photoshop. The colours (are they tulips?) are fantastic. Congratulations...

Very clever use of complementary colours ... and what a fantastic technique and note.
Thank you for sharing both.

Can I order one of these paperweights Mike... ;)?
Nice work with a good, classy glassy feel about it!
Reminds me of marbling times...

Yes, you are right Mike .. I do LOVE this one.
I've put it in my Techniques to try file. Thanks. Your post processing skills are great, and this really does look like a paperweight. I like the choice of using Tulips as the colours really work well for the technique you used. Big thanks for explaining all the steps in your note. I'm sure many of us on TL will appreciate trying this out one day. I like the way the petals are on the outside, then leading the eye to the middle to see the patterning of the green leaves. Cool idea.

It's look like some spectacular plate. I already try this effect to obtain other tricks. But with flowers the result is very impressive!

VERY creative Mike - it is so beautiful, it gives an almost kaleidoscope effect. Thank you for the instructions, I would really like to try this sometime. Now all we need is your instructions on how to create it in coloured glass or ceramic!! Great post processing.
