Scoter Drakes for Traditions Guide Service

Postby DUKHTR » Mon Feb 13, 2012 10:43 am

finished these up for Troy..........at least a start on an order, although these are ex-gratia.........foam core/16 lb urethane heads from Toledo/trestle coating with cork dust/yellow pine keels on a burlapped bottom.......I really like this medium for trestle coating....not as 'hairy' as the sawdust....these are very solid and still provide a great anti-glare finish while showing detail if desired
