Kinda on the Big side and this thing is gonna be a LOT of work.
It's part of a collection I'm building for Feb/Mar Shenanigans

From here on out it's all X-Acto and Scalpels.

I want to badly, it's one of the reasons I bought a new camera, BUT, I have to install a cleat on the ceiling with maybe a monopod attached to it to mount the camera.
Something I haven't had the time for yet, but WILL in the near future without a doubt.

Yep, but I'll use a Test board to show ya. the basic stuff for this board.

So when I started this out, I use the embossing tool I used to make feathers and scales for "Escape".
With it, I can draw on the board, & it leaves a very slight sheen that you have to have the light at just the right angle to see.
