  • Gluing the halos on the angel ornaments

    G'morning, folks. I just received a PM asking how I manage to glue the halos onto the heads of the angel ornaments, and since I ran into the same difficulty, I decided to post the question here for all you angel makers to post your answers. My solution was to make a smaller hole in the halo. I use a 3/8 bit to drill the hole instead of cutting it on the saw. Yeah, it's hard to get the hole cut in the middle exactly (I redrew the halo, marked the centre and then made a zillion copies), but who says halos have to be perfectly dimensioned? I prefer that they stay firmly adhered! I've had the best luck using Aileen's clear gel tacky glue.

    How about the rest of you? Any similar difficulties and solutions?

    Make the angels out of wormy wood and they will by holy. Maybe they'll grow their own halos. It's worth a try!

        Scott, I was referring to her pms to Bill Wilson and Quartz. They posted her reply by pms instead of on here.
        Would be nice Quartz. I asked got Bob to put the issue next tp patterns and he said something about real estate. He found a way to do it and didn’t lose any real estate. Guess they don’t...

        I would be pleased if FC at least did a trial of printing A pattern on regular sized text and also providing a scale up factor. Their resistance to do anything if a real pain. It was a similar lack of action with the website that resulted in lost viewers.

        I think Kelly did that because I wrote a letter to the editor complaining about an article in the last addition. It was the article about staying connected online and it didn't mention the FC forum....

        The fastest I've ever seen one of those 3d deer cuts was by Rick Hutcheson. That man was super fast when we was working the shows.

        Here he is much more recently, and a bit slower:
