    Default Blood Red Gold

    I got this on e-Bay. Joking around in another thread I went and looked only to win. I was bidding on a 7/8 but after I won it turned into a 6/8. Seller gave me a discount but didn't have to really. Came with a strop too !

    The brass was about the same color as the scales and it had a small chunk out of it above the G .
    A little magic and it started looking good right away.

    I had to decide on a color and liking the opaque acrylics and never having seen a good enough pearl type to replace these with I picked this red. Not as opaque as the other 2 I have done but I thought it more appropriate for a Goldedge .

    This is my 4th transfer job and I am starting to enjoy it.
    Today not so much. All I had to do was pin it. I dropped washers 26 times , had to pin it 3 times. The dang blade closed to the backside and hit so I had to fix that twice. I need to buy some of those tiny screws and nuts for next time. The others just closed perfect first pin but I guess my luck ran out and a lesson was learned. I have to do a final clean up and polish which is going to take a lot longer. After un-pinning and pinning the sucker 3 times it got a little scratched up. The biggest positive note to this one is , I gave it the terry cloth rub down and it never grabbed a single thread and I got aggressive with it. So other than the look of it you would never know it's not actually inlay-ed.

    I have to start buying ONLY the ones I already have so I can talk myself into selling them. :<0)

    Mastering implies there is nothing more for you to learn of something... I prefer proficient enough to not totally screw it up.

    I really love the translucent acrylics you've been using. Where do you get it?

    I don't usually like transfer jobs, but this looks beautiful in red. Great work.
