Can it be that my camera is better than the one that made the photo obtained from the internet? That would explain everything, hahaha.

My best compliments. :-)

Hi, a little late for my question, but may I ask how you did the buttons?
That is one of my major problems in conversations.

Apart from that, some idea for shafts of weapons that will make your wife happy, too. Flower thread - the long, thin metal thread that flowerists use to straighten / stabilize flowers.
Just ask for some extras while you buy a rose for your sweetheart ;-).

All edges / other endings of 'PVA conversions' can be simulated by PVA'ed threads used for buttons etc. Just check what thickness you need.

But the buttons, good lord, they evade all my tricks and imaginations.

I really need help :-(!!!!!

Greetings, Photoro

Good idea using flower thread for weapons shafts. I must try that sometime and make happy my wife at the same time. Thank you for the advice, Photoro. :tongue:

I make all my modelling conversions using only PVA glue and a toothpick to apply it. I "draw" the required item with a PVA line and then I proceed to add one layer and another until the required thickness is reached. The same applies to buttons, except these are easier to make. Just put a glue stitch in the desired place and then add more stitches on top until you get the necessary thickness. :thumbup:

I hope I helped you with your problem. ;-)

Best regards.

Santi.

White wood glue is a very versatile material and ideal for conversions for me. Cheap, easy to work with and very resistance once hardened, don't you agree, BB? :mrgreen:

Cheers. :beer:

Thank you very much for your warm welcome, sansovino. But, are you sure that you are not confounding me with someone else? I think that I've never left the forum for any long period since my arriving at it. :lol:

I agree that this is an exciting project (of course, it's mine :mrgreen: )...but also one with a very slow progress. :sweatdrop:

Best regards.
