    Thanks - I certainly think they'll color up well.

    I hear you about the wingtip monk thing. And then I went and did it with a double monk no less. This is not a make up I would normally go for. But there was something about the overall effect (including the pebble grain) that had a certain naive charm that appealed to me. Perhaps I'm crazy - but it won't be the first time I've been accused of it! :D

    Yes, but sadly the mission is over for now. I have a pair of Alfred Sargent Handgrades on order and that's the end for a few months.

    When I resume I'm going to do a few pairs of Vass and then hold for a long while.

    Thanks. It's MII RLPL.
    Searched the forum, the maker is Silvano Sassetti?

    Never heard before.

    You are welcome Uncle Mac.

    Having done these I think I must compliment myself on how descriptive these side by sides actually are. :nodding:

    I hope to do more of them - anyone else wanna play?

    Uncle Mac,

    I need more to do with my mind right now - not enough work on my plate - as soon as the project load kicks back in all this shoe information will be jettisoned out the back of my head like yesterday's trash. In the meantime it keeps me off the streets at night. :D
