« Part 2: The segmented turning Part 3 of Indian pottery and pyrography series Part 4: Starting the pyrography »

I did some math to determine how many pattern repetitions would fit and look good on this turning. The magic number was 26. I drew a gird pattern and then began drawing the pattern. I used some clear, flexible plastic as a ruler to help draw around the curvature. Drawing on a curved surface can be challenging.

Pyrography on flat surfaces can be challenging enough; I really admire the people that can do the curved and have it come out nice.

Drawing on a curved surface can be challenging, but for me it looks almost impossible.
