HALP SOMEONE TALK ME OUT OF BUILDING MY OWN ELECTRIC FIDDLE-MADE-OF-GOLD*
* Fiddle may be only gold-coloured and not contain any actual gold
It has been a (lowers sunglasses) hell of a year
Blog post coming soon
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
As promised, a blog post on the making of the Stradivarielzebub
There we go, final touches applied—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 looks awesome! :D
@robey Thanks so much! :)
