Many WW supply outlets have nice appliques(?) to dress up period pieces but the majority are for straight line use. I need some for arched mirror/picture frames.

Here is an example of one that would work.

I’d like to break it in half, curve it downward on each side and insert an oval for a scrolled initial.

Thanks.

Gene, maybe Cricket could photoshop the above pic. You know, in all her free time. I tried and found several ways that didn’t work.

JIM!!!!
I think I may have found one or two that will work and look easy enough to modify without a degree in design. They are from Bombard Designs. Thanks for all those links.
