Mask, middle layer part 2
Whew ... this was a task: cutting around the edges with a scroll saw; sanding the edges, attacking the nooks and crannies with a box cutter and Exacto blade, more sanding, more exacto cleanup, and sand again. Next I'll be priming the edges, painting them with acrylic, and cleaning up the surface before adding a clear topcoat to the leaves - the centre must be kept free of dust and topcoat to allow for proper adhesion when I add a spacer layer and then the top layer.
