    My First Canadian ..................

    Flag cast in Polyester Resin wrapped around a Black Titanium/Platinum Elegant Beauty.

    Still needs a lot of improvement with my technique.

    Finished with 400 grit, buffed with super fine steel wool and polished with Huts Ultra Gloss.

    Did you print the flag your self? Looks like it worked out quite well to me

    Looks great from here. Les. You may see a need for improvement, but it sure doesn't show in the pics.

    Les that is amazing! Your creations are over the top! Can the flag emblem be turned a quarter of a turn so when the pen is in use it is right side up? I am sure you thought of this and decided on this direction, any specific reasons?

    Very excellent.
    You are risking sucking me into the casting vortex.

    Nice job! I looked several times and can't see where the improvement is needed.

    Thanks Jonathan,

    Excellent point!

    Yes, the flag can be turned a 1/4 turn and one of the flags can also be a mirror image as well.
    This one is my first, so no specific reason.

    Thanks for your constructive input, this is what it's all about.

    Les
