Worktable Wednesday: Making a Match

A couple of years ago I made this Spiral Goddess plaque, which was purchased almost immediately. The customer likes it so much, she  has now asked if I could make a God plaque as well, so that she could have a matching pair. 

No longer having the completed piece at hand, I've been consulting photos I took of the Spiral Goddess to help me come up with a similar, but masculine design.  I sketched out some ideas and then created a cardstock template of the God shape.

Now I am working on filling in the shape with a design similar to the Goddess-- swirls of black and an intricate edge in "lines and dashes." 

Once the design is complete it will be cured, given a patina and varnish and then cured again before it is set on the plaque.

What's on your worktable?
