* Fiddle may be only gold-coloured and not contain any actual gold

Btw, carefully note the year of the date on the first post of this thread

Once I've made a few adjustments, then I have some gold leaf that I'm going to use to gild the edges, because that was kind of the whole point of this project :P

There we go, final touches appliedβ€”the tail and horns now have a bit of gold leaf on them

It is now literally a "shiny fiddle made of gold"

@bgcarlisle This is honestly so cool and impressive and I'm proud of you.

@bgcarlisle Amazing work!

Like you say, definitely could be gold-colored. Even just a gold hint. :P

@mdm I have gold leaf that I'm going to use to gild the edges now that I know it works haha

@bgcarlisle i should hope so, you've got a fiddle with a backstory longer than i've been on Fedi
