Re: Welsh rugby cap

Have done a couple in my time, just tagged them in place , let them lie as they wanted, then fixed the tassel knot in place, and let the tassels do what they want

Re: Pearl or pearlescent moulding

This is some vinyl I applied to some moulding around 12 months ago, it's still on there and looking fine, I think that you could do the same with pearlescent or glitter vinyl and it would work

I think you only need to use just 2mm MDF or whatever backing you normally use, depends on the moulding, as long as it's deep enough to take the glass, artwork and the backing board you should be okay, if its a thin moulding, then d-ring and rivet the backing , 1/3 down from the top and about 4cm in...
