    How can you possibly do that without breaking those whiskers? Are those the last little bits you do? Amazing.

    The answer, for me is yes. Lots of scrollers do the hardest first, the theory is if you goof, you can start over and not lose much. I kinda save the most fragile for last. My theory is I do not want to break the fragile part while I am moving the blade from one hole to the next. If I goof up at that point..... there is always a couple shots of Seagram's VO to smooth it out!!


    Thanks all for the nice comments. I am off to try the most difficult one I have ever tried. May not be posting pictures for a long time.

    Well, patience and skill. Without the skill to pull it off, the patience doesn't get you to the final result.
