Default Re: Playing with clay and drawing scrolls

Really cool idea. It helps to visualize, especially some of the 3d effects, and with a modest tweak of a curve here or there, you can achieve entirely new looks. Get a shape or scroll pattern you like, and copy it.

Unless you have discovered some way of transfering a clay pattern to metal! :D

And I must agree about the lathe. That has got to be for display only. Otherwise, the wall behind the chuck would have a nice vertical line, and there'd be at least a few chips on the bed!
