This close up of the tray shows the multi-layered effect of the "crackle" finish.  The base coat is cobalt blue.  Subsequent coats of blue-green, yellow & forest green were applied, utilizing 2 different types of "crackle" media.  I think the "crackle" finish draws one's eye to the green tiles, especially the Sakura "Galaxy" tiles with gold stars.  The painted surfaces were sealed with 2 coats of water-based polyurethane (low VOC).

This galaxy, NGC 4565, is a disk galaxy viewed at nearly an edge-on angle. Galaxies like these are of particular interest for their links to star formation and the speeds at which galaxies rotate.

Types of galaxies, according to the Hubble classification scheme. An E indicates a type of elliptical galaxy; an S is a spiral; and SB is a barred-spiral galaxy Galaxy.
