Examples of tests - gluing, color matching with airbrushing, creating perfectly-shaped fills.
Water damage removed, some examples of holes.
This hole took me a day to fill.
The result - can you see it? (hint - near the left of the tail)
Take a closer look.
Tiger is looking beautiful! The fills look good and the airbrushing is really challenging but rewarding. The old felt has been removed and some preliminary lining has been glued into place around the fills that are completed.
February entails: (haha) more fills, more airbrushing and gluing, lining, re-felting, claw replacement.
