I thought this time I would try to do a design layout on paper like I should instead of impatiently jumping in with my graver and cutting then thinking about the plan after I started.
This my Llama .380 . It'll be my first pistol engraving. I thought I would have some poison ivy with silver inlay as the vine on the upper part of the slide and on the frame. The main part of the slide I would be happy with all scrolls but the lettering is throwing me off. I'd like to have uninterrupted scrolls around the lettering if I could.
Drinking on the job at the Llama factory must have been encouraged because the guy that cut the grip serrations on the right side of the slide was clearly drunk so I cut/filed them out. I could either recut them or have some scrolls in there. I would really appreciate some simple design help on this. Thank you ,Mark
