« Part 2: Getting closer with 11 hours down. Part 3 of Acanthus carvings series no next part

Push goes to shove and then you have a completed project!!!!

Because I wasn’t going to be doing the appling of these I layed out the pieces with the Coat of Arms pattern as an example for those who were going to apply them.

There was time limit on these so I was pushed rather quickly. I had a total of 16 hours from start to finish.
