And after setting a precedent with the copper stamps I probably shouldn't post these piccies either, but here they are anyway:


Giant blue Ankh-Morpork Post Office Stamp (measures 460mm x 310mm)

Giant Artificer's Shop Stamp (measures 460mm x 310mm)

Giant FDC for giant stamps (size = big : the giant stamps were contained within!)

I also found that question highly suspicious, and I'm sure they could think of something, we all heard what happened to C.E. and I'm sure we won't forget his sad fate anytime soon!

He was quiteshy and reserved when I had a natter with him at CCDE. Thoroughly lovely bloke though. Same goes for Alan Batley, although he wasn't so shy.

Talking about copper, I've just sent my entry to Bernard. It is an envelpe specially designed for the Alchecmist's Guild and lined inside with a copper sheet. Weighs quite a but it is the renown Nil Cumbustible brand.

Well, I have finished refining the artwork for the Copper Patricians and am now just waiting for the ICT technicians to finish updating the network so I can get access to a decent laser printer again to make a decent quality mask. (Unsure how much longer they are planning to work on the network for)

The artwork as it stands is shown below and may need further refining, but I wont know I've printed it as a photo-etching mask.

All lettering on the designs has been cleaned up so it should be cleaner to etch compared to my fist prototypes, but I think some hair highlighting will be added back before I'm completely happy

I have an idea as to how I might be able to do this using some 3D software on the CAM machine I have in school. Unfortunately with the school network being upgraded at the moment I have no chance of trying this out for another couple of weeks
