Certainly does.

No idea as to colour but I had a dabble and this is the result. What do you think?

Colour one from me. I think green tartan with blue and red with sky background will look nice, if i get time I will do another one.

:D Hey you two ... leave some colours for us slowcoaches !!!

Wendy you're doing very nicely and it's NOT a competition.
Or rather, we compete against ourselves (does that makes sense ?) it's more like 'how can I solve the next problem ? what can I learn from restoring this one ?'
That sort of thing.

I've seen some truly shocking stuff from beginners on another website but then I guess a lot of it boils down to a matter of taste.

Hmmm well, no it doesn't always :D I mean dayglo pink and green really don't look too good on period photographs :mad:



I've never tried doing tartan before and have been googling for colours .... OMG how confusing was that

brenmac
20-03-09, 15:47

Walgreen does a great job of restorations, they did my grandmother's family when she was a child, and her nose had been scratched off. You can't tell, maybe you could consider them. ruby

Ruby You made your first post to say Walgreen does a great job of restorations:(
Walgreen charge you for restoration, we do this for free not for a living.
