    Magnificent work David! Love those ribbons just twisting around one another.

  • Thanks for your fave and comments, Jackie!! This is a great tut if you can survive creating 17 transforms and all the Xaos adjustments. And I haven’t even tried to use the flame parameters :o)))

    You’re welcome hun. I can survive the tut, but I can’t spend much time in my chair. I have been instructed to elevate my leg and relax so if I get a chance to play I will. :D
