Well bless my compass, aren't we off to a rousing start? You are doing very well. I would never tackle such a subject. It's too exacting for me.

Continued success.

I used to be a typesetter. Lol. I guess type doesn't scare me much or I'm a glutton for punishment.

This is a really interesting composition.

Glad the text in all those different styles doesn't scare you because this is going to be really fun watching you work on this day by day.

Re: Bottle Caps - WIP



Last night's work was this rim. First one done. I'm very happy with it, but the cap needs a bit more work.
