Hi Matt, thank you,
last year I went on a paint and texturing course with George Foweraker and Mark Raby, which made me want to experiment more, if you can go on 1 it is well worth it, if not look at Georges Blog artistryinwood for a brilliant tutorial

been over to george's site and viewed the demo, great idea.. I was going to sell my lathe and accessories up to a week ago as i dont use it anymore, but got to say how inspired i am by your turnings, i am now keeping my lathe and getting ready for some turning practise..
