    mmmalmberg LOVES Wooden Canoes

    Overdue for an update...
    First, I had half of an original deck decal that I wanted to complete with a decal from the store. Those turned out to be slightly bigger than the original, but I was able to splice four pieces of the new decal together to fit it to the original. I used some orange shellac to match the color (I could tell when I was sanding down to the decal that it had orange shellac on it).

    WOW, stepping back for a moment does work, doesn't it. You're good company.

    The funny thing is when I put the orange shellac on it, it began to attack the decal, creating little breaks in it that look much like the worn original! At first I thought I blew it, then I realized it was just the right thing:)
