Aww, thanks. I guess it looks OK, even if it wasn’t my initial vision lol. I think I’m just more aggravated after working on it for hours to have it ruined at the very end and having to make another one.
It’s hard to see , but the dark one has two layers with the heart sitting on top. The VERY last step was for one more engrave of the veins and damned if I didn’t see the irritating fill-rule bug and instead of just engraving the veins, it etched away the entire heart/paint. Luckily I had a completed heart from another project cut out and I was able to slap it on top. The white edge and thick clear coat looked weird against the subdued clock face so I had to improvise and some white embellishments to the face and shine it all up. At least the next one only took half as long since I had the layering and ordering all figured out. It still took a lot of time and masking though.
(Please, please @dan can something be done with the fill bug. I had to go back and forth between the GUI and my program several times to reverse paths on different elements. It’d be almost acceptable if you could design for it, but I’m not sure what the issue is. It sure cost a lot of extra time and aggravation.)
I agree about the dark hands and the plan is to have the hands be a yellow arrow like this. I was hoping to glue something on top of the pre-made hands, but they’re awful flimsy. Gonna have to experiment a bit.
