All that is left to hook on Old Tom is the border. Haven't decided which colors to use so thought if I took a photo with wool laid out could make my decision easier. Below is a photo with a thin cut of the gold used in Tom's legs and some textured used in the wing.
And here is a photo of the gold with a primitive black border. Think I definitely prefer the black but..... what if I put one row of gold, one row of the texture of wing and then black????
So decided to lay those out. Hmm, Think I'm leaning toward the gold and black only. But will see how things shake out as I try and finish this up.
