Greyguy replied to John Polacchi's discussion Silver Brazing "small" balls to rods
"I have been thinking for a 3/32 ball joint the rod can be soldered to the side of the ball instead of drilling a hole in the ball. Got pictures of what your trying to do? "

"John what I would look into is having artwork printed on the vinyl , that would be my first test. I was always thinking of having feathers made like how they make faux flowers! some of that stuff is very real looking !"

John Polacchi replied to Greyguy's discussion Start of a new armature
"I wonder how this might work for something of a much smaller scale and the feathers need painting/detailing?"

Mike replied to Greyguy's discussion Start of a new armature
"This is incredible work! The wings look great, and the steel armature looks very precise. How in the world did you machine something so intricate? Truly impressive. I can't wait to see the whole thing together. "
