    black paint?

    I have some printer's ink that seems to work well for me. It is developing a surface "rind" that's rubbery and not usable. With what do you thin that stuff?

    trout flask

    This view of a trout is very popular in many different art forms, and I have looked critically at many and tried to draw my own multiple times. It ain't easy! There are even some published drawings by fabulous talents and books by authoritative trout fishermen (it won't do to name no names)...

    Question: stereo microscope confusion

    As a biology prof., I have ~ 35 stereozooms of various makes at work. The B&L's are certainly good bang-for-the-buck so long as you avoid the 7X model. That one is usable, but a little fuzzy. New Chinese and Russian scopes are a mixed bag optically. I would not buy one without trying it...

    Mantis Elite 'scope Experience?

    Help, please: Sam's boarder diagram & instruction?

    Thank you! I like it, but that's not it. The one I'm missing had simple scrolls, end to end.

    Help, please: Sam's boarder diagram & instruction?

    As I recall, Sam posted a diagram and instructions for a layout and cutting a boarder like this one, but simpler. I know I copied a diagram like that, but I have lost it. I can't find it in my computer or on this forum. Can someone point me to it? Thanks!
