GODS! They look fantastic, Le Fanu!

They were well worth the wait - and we have been waiting to see them.

Thanks for posting. (Guess I have a new project.)

That deck look SO much better trimmed! I was wondering how the backs would turn out, what with the front images not being in the center. Thanks for posting...

Beautiful deck, too bad about the backs...LOL! Still a must-have if you're into Pixie art though. Thanks for the link, rwcarter!

I've just trimmed the white borders off my Harmonious and gold blinged the edges.
Looks soooo much better I think.

Here..
If you click on the second pic you can see the gold just.

Those are GORGEOUS!!! Wow!! Absolutely beautiful.

So...you used one of those trimmers and rounded corner edger thingies? What about for the gold?

I am rather pleased with the way it has turned out.

I used a combination of scissors and a guillotine-style cutter (when my fingers needed a break).
This corner trimmer is my favourite, takes of the least amount of the ones I own.
The gold edges I did with some Rub n Buff in Grecian Gold. One at a time applied with a sponge.

The photo's were a bit of a rush job I'm afraid..
I'll try and arrange them in a more pleasing shot a bit later today.

^ It's gorgeous! I just sold mine. Hated the borders and felt that they took away from the images. I must admit, even though I trim many decks, didn't think to try it on this one!

Back onto the wish list it goes . It's not an expensive deck, so it's okay. I can see myself using gold paint to touch up some of the areas with a fine brush.

[ideas for another thread].
