Faux segment decoration

Ive been playing getting my feet wet with basket illusion technique and was curious if I could use segment pro to design a pattern. As it is basket illusion doesnt stagger the units of the pattern the way segmentation does but I could easily make a faux segment pattern with the same techniques. I worked up a four layer pattern for a decorative ring in segment pro and proceeded to bead a small bowl with a 1/8” beading tool and friction burned them with wire. I used the 144 hole index set to do a staggered 72 segment pattern around the bowl with my pyrography pen in a sled I made from scrap and using a platform I had built after seeing John Lucas demonstrate router embellishing. Afterwards I colored it with colored sharpies and finished with Deft spray varnish.
