I got lucky today! I've been going to my favorite junkyard (don't ask) for decades an about one trip in 20 or so turns up something good (I once got a #2 diacro bender for $35 for instance). I'm usually on the hunt for something big but today this little jem caught my eye. It was in a space set aside for ''sellable'' brass and copper stuff fished out of the tons of scrap non ferrous they bring in....... It's REAL. A miniture repousse on a 22ga piece of copper x7 3/4'' x 10''. It looks to be a Chinese calander motif with all sorts of things,animals, and people in the mix. The detail is so tiny it must have taken someone months to do...I'll post close ups when I get home.
For those in the area or are willing to travel, there is an excellent event scheduled for Labor Day weekend in Dallas. http://www.ntxba.org/events.html?task=view_event&event_id=2 http://forums.armourarchive.org/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=147142&sid=9004c25ea0c03e9a9411066f1a97d6b0 It looks to be an awesome event. I will be making the trip from Maryland to advance my knowledge in steel repousse and armor construction. I'm looking forward to seeing some of the Western demonstrators and vendors, too. If you didn't just blow the travel budget on ABANA, check out the links and the demonstrators. They are all making top class work.
