My pics don’t do it justice. I’m quite pleased with how it turned out.
Hexadecagon, yes i had to look that up. On tube blank was tapered and faceted then mica was applied, black trim rings added and then clear cast.
Mark, I have found the depth effect to be a big plus of doing it this way. I think it has to do with the reflection off of the mica and the surface working together.That is really nice. The visual depth is wonderful - facets, mica, clear cast - well done.
