Re: William Anderson Demonstrating Clark Dubbing Block Technique

Turns out making the blocks is the easy part. Question: After I get the body spun up and slip it onto a card like William does, I still have an issue with the body wanting to unravel while on the card. (try a thicker card perhaps?) Problem #2.

Re: Purple March Brown Spider

Purple cows are tasty. Brown cows are so ...pedestrian. Resist the urge to cut your beef until you see that wonderfully mottled Pearsall's purple/Peacock herl green glow appear on its flanks.
