Re: Dutch Ripple and other stuff

interesting
I will give that a try

Re: Dutch Ripple and other stuff

Hi Nick

I have a good size set with some of the names you list below and also some old ones I bought online
as long as they are razor sharp you can get some good results

I will keep posting the dutch frames as I make more but they are time consuming
