And please don't ask me about peening those rivets in between the repousse lines. Sanity is slowly coming back now. The project was not without mistakes and compromises, but I was fairly satisfied with how the whole set ended up.... one thing I do regret is not getting much character out of the wrought. It ended up just looking like mild steel. I'd love to hear what you all think.
