Badge and buttons

Post by Roboframer » Fri 21 Aug, 2015 2:29 pm

Plus a cigarette card and a train ticket (encapsulated) - Christs Hospital school has it's own train station.

I could have just poked holes with an awl for the buttons but I got the CMC to cut 5x1mm apertures so I didn't have to worry about them being in line. Super sofstrand wire is passed through the buttons' loops and simply folded over. Nothing fancy - Moulding - Simons Brett 20, mount board artcare brushed silver, artcare black foam board spacers and clarity glass.

Nice job! Clever button fixing technique, very efficient use of time and no compromise on quality either.

Nice job, I bet it looks much better in the flesh, the silver card looks grey on the photograph, where as in real life it will give it some life.

It is nice to see a object framed with enough space around it, most forget to do this when framing anything but pictures.
