Blunders happen

When you spend a lot of time on an inlay and remember the reason you didn't want to use it

You're gonna have to point out the blunder to me. I don't see it. Looks good to me.

If you don't have time to do it right the first time, when will you have time to do it over?

Oh I get it. It was supposed to be a dark humming bird on a light field!

the bird has no feet...

The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)

Had you not told us I would have never know that, it looked intentional to me.

With ink you could color in the detail you forgot. Once finished nobody would ever know. You might get a repidograph pen to do it.

Personally, I think it looks great and the double scribed line looks intentional. Change your terminology from "Blunders happen" to "Beauty happens" because I think you've knocked this one out of the park. Nice job.

You shouldn't have told us (or anybody) It looks quite deliberate to me.

Wife was looking over my shoulder when I looked at the picture of your hummingbird. She said it would've looked too plain if the artist had not put the flight feathers line on the wing. I didn't tell her that was your "blunder".

I don't agree with her. I think you are so right ... it looks terrible. I think you should send it to me for proper disposal.

I used them in Art School

They have different diameter points and are numbered. There's a sliding rod, real tiny that allow the India Ink to drain out of the tip and that's what determines the width of the line. I still have a bunch of them and they were used to make line drawings and charts and graphs.

Better spell it right though .... Rapidograph.

Man, it's been a long time since I used a Rapidograph. Used them for technical drawing on vellum. They make beautiful, uniform lines. I had to look see if they were still made, Yup.
