Apologies in advance for the picture quality, I've been reduced to my cellphone for taking pictures, and well, it works, but not the best.
Step 1: You will need....
A socketed spatula and ladle
A couple of old broom sticks
and a bag of craft feathers.
I also like to try and use hand tools, again, because it adds to the feel. I used
a couple files
a box cutter
and some string and a large needle.
Step 2: Roughing out the points
Got your outline drawn on? good, now grab some tin snips and cut it out. Next hammer it mostly flat, do any necesarry clean up trimming and grab a file and take off any burs or sharp bits on the edges.
