The stanchions are done in a quite risky way: glass beads for necklaces glued on some 0.7 mm thick brass tubing. the trick is to sand each of the wire's extremities so that theyt offer more adherance when you glue them.
This is a bit lame, but I need to change the server of this site which is so slooow, and also to reactivate cdiorama.com
Here are the border plates now glued (on my hands too), and with some D shaped Evergreen bit both on the top and the bottom of the side plates. Now i will need to mastic the whole of this work and to build the stanchions..
Products heads up
I was sent that Pebeo Cernes Relief product some time agio and liked it straight away. Its fine tip allows me to make joints between the stuff i embbed in water and the stuff itself like my graves here.
It dries just like regular glossy Acrylic gel that you can find in art shops or Valejo's Water Effect (which is exactly the same stuff)
The reason I use those flex-pad instead of other solutions is seen here: I have been owning the same since 4 years and even though mine are in bad shape they still work alright. I love the "blade tip" which allows to sand in the crevices
That's a hobby sort of posting. I recently bought Uschi van der Rosten's metalic pigments and well, I used to know Alex before he was Uschi you see and this kind of posts can't do him wrong.
