I mentioned in an earlier post that I collect many things. My collection of cameras is probably my largest collection. I have cameras in every room. Well, minus the bathrooms. (That would be a little too creepy for me) Along with the cameras I have photography related items up the wazoo. One such item is a collection of printer blocks that spell out the word photographs. I adore these little blocks, but have found wherever I place the letters the letter itself seems to get lost in the shadow of the wood block.
Contrast is what I needed to bring out the detail. I accomplished this by grabbing a pair of Mr. Wonderful’s old undies for they make the best rags. (YES, they were clean)
Then I used some silver leaf rub ‘n buff, this stuff:
It took less than 15 minutes to rub this onto the letters. Now you can really see each letter.
Amazing what a difference of 15 minutes of time can make! Now I’m happy with those little letters.
Thanks for taking a look. Have a terrific day! Take time to visit “Show & Tell Friday’s” at :
