Re: Reliable sources that don't break the bank

Jane Ramsey at Janes Wardrobe creates some very fine Stays and associated clothing. Worth looking into!!

Re: cleaning clothing

My local dry cleaner has gotten used to bits of kit coming through their doors. They just ask to sign a little waiver if it has no care symbols.

It's surprising the lengths people go to for a little bit of cash or goods. Glad they didn't take anything!

Is the leather edging based off anything in particular?
What size is this one?

Re: Website Video

No i know what i meant :-D

Videos or flash intros on the front page of a website, they don't always have to take up the whole page. Your site seems fine as it is tbh, it's tidy and pretty blinking obvious what you do and how i go about booking.

Re: Website Video

Personally, i avoid websites with flash/video front pages. It generally slows my computer down and all i do is skip ahead anyway. This might not be everyone but i certainly find them annoying. Having them in a seperate area is fine but not first thing.

Re: Steel Mastery Brigandine's?

The difference in price between Steel mastery and White rose is because the white rose version actually resembles a brigandine!

Ufortunately as you may have guessed, it isn't the top of my list of things to finish. The workshop needs finishing first (hopefully the next couple of months).

Re: Butterfly Brooch

That's the thing, i couldn't quite make my mind up about it.

I was thinking of setting a stone down the middle for the body and texturing the wings.

Frost auto tools do a good one, it's a knock off of another brand but works perfectly well.

Something like this should take care of the edges http://www.justoffbase.co.uk/Deburring- ... ealey-DB01

£400? Get thee a jigsaw and a sheet of 18g (£30 tops) and have at it. Cutting the plates out is the easy bit. :-D

I suggest a hand hole punch for the holes cleaner and quicker than a drill.

We posted at the same time, there was a slight cross over.

Trading Dragon mentioned his trials where he painted on unprimed canvas.

I just wondered why?
