Re: Guest Book pictures



Duncan,

Gorgeous in a word. Would like some more info, though.  What is a magnesium
die?  And where do you find them?  Also--do you have the address of the Ohio
Travel Bag company?  How did you attach the latch?  Please describe the
process of transferring carbon copied art to copper with acetone?

I am learning how to use metal on books as well and am hammering my own
latches, making hinges with rivets, etc.  whew.  Would love to order some
instead of doing such intensive work all the time!

A really great job!  Thanks for showing us the book and telling how you did
it!  jansapp@GTE.NET
