...out of my sketchbook and straight to Saltaire Arts Trail 2012, are these fish badges. I have umm-ed and ahhh-ed over wood/laser cut badges for a while - trying to up my game and improve the quality of my work so with the help of a great friend of mine, a sample batch of laser cut birch wood was ordered. I decided against etched details for now. They have been hand painted and varnished to high heaven. All i need to do is glue the brooch backs on tomorrow night after the trip to get back up North - should have been done by now already but the snooker tournament has been catching my eye - go Ronnie!
