And now for something completely different...



A bit of a twist on an ordinary chrysanthemum, wouldn't you say? I've just learned how to do these orbitals and I'm utterly fascinated.

Want to try it yourself? Here's a tutorial that explains how.

Look here for more ruby red images of every shape and size.

I love the vivid result. Also have I bookmarked the tutorials, I just might try it with the roses I bought for new year, Thanks for being so inspirational and sharing as well.

You're very good to give the tutorial link, thanks!
The picture reminds me a little of those machines where you put in coins and they whirl away!

Very cool! I use Gimp for my images, and I think I could probably use the tutorial with that program.

Have fun...
