I think either would be beautiful, but I’m really digging the gold. It really fits with the art nouveau thing youve got going on.
Annoying side question, what gold paint did you use? Is it acrylic? I’ve messed around with gold ink and gold watercolor (just what I had on hand), but neither worked very well. Predictably, I suppose.
Love the idea of shaped corner connectors for frames…those are stunning. (And I’d love to see them in exotics, but I’m more of a “natural woods” as opposed to painted kind of person. The gold does look pretty sharp.)
OMG that’s hilarious !
They send you a sample, but it might never be identified !
That matches my ‘best find’ today when shopping. I bought some ‘Wonky Grapes’, I kid you not.
Over here, some of the supermarkets have been making great thing of selling mis-shapen vegetables as ‘wonky’, like carrots, etc. , but grapes ?
OK, they’re smaller than usual, so out of their spec, but sweet and juicy so far.
I’m doing something similar with a narrow ‘rim’ for the front of a deep, box frame.
I’m using a double dovetail insert - imagine a butterfly, locking the two flat sections together, set in the corners.
Yes that was exactly it.
Given a little time, I’ll sort out a drawing of what I’m doing - a box frame for my small fans.
The actual frame is in its third iteration at the moment, and I just need to sort out a ‘stand off’ part that will lock into the back, and I’m good to go.
Loving the idea that I can use the GF to not only make the whole fan, but also the frame and the assembly jigs as well.
