I imagine the passes are far easier than the masks, but how do you get the images from the episode and get them to look so realistic? You are so creative and talented!

Well the card is designed from scratch on a PC closely copied from a screen capture. The photo of Steed is a snap taken from the actual prop as it appears on pause on a large screen, then it's straightened, sharpened and manipulated in photoshop as best as it can be Smile

That's really nifty Ian. You really make the items look so professional. Perhaps even better than the original! Laughing

Finding the right, or a very similar looking, serum bottle to the now nearly 50 year old one seen on screen is proving to be a nightmare, I managed to track down a good substitute but it was WAY too tall.



After a bit of thought and in desperation I decided to trim it down, making the cut where the level of the liquid will eventually be will hopefully disguise the rejoin, I intend to fill it with coloured resin. Triming down the cap and respraying it silver should hopefully make the whole piece look like what's seen on screen.

The sticky tape around the join needs to be removed once the resin has cured hard ...



Yay nearly there Wink
