Today the portrait was saved and continued, and I finally started to feel like I was having fun with the lathe, through being able to play with it. Today's lesson was about texturing glass with engraving, which can often be mistaken or interchanged with cutting glass. Batutto was primarily discussed, and how to place it accurately on your object by segmenting it with lines and planes before you start. But from practicing this on a wine bottle, I leant how to make raindrops, which Is More fun!
