Got several new Ducks in and here are two of them.
A Satinwedge and a Satinedge.

Both were in fair condition so I had little to loose.
The blades weren't too bad. Some hone wear on on but I fixed that.
I cleaned up the steel, did an original texture on both blades, polished the spine and the stabilizer but did a frosted finish on the shafts and tail as the originals were. You can see where it ends on the top of the spine shot.
The scales?
Well the Satinedge was missing one of the ducks heads and the letter D was gone so I put them back in place so I could add gold to the script. Same on the face.
The Satinwedge was rough in some areas as you can see in the photos. But it came out pretty well. Both are nice and clear.
I made collars to replicate the original ones to keep a factory look to the both of them.
They are now shown with the rest of the "Flock" and sitting in the new nest I bought for them.

Those look incredible. Can't believe they are the same ones I traded you. How hard was it to remove the yellowing from the scales?

Thank you very much. Glad to know you are happy with the outcome.

The yellowing in most cases is merely on the surface. Sanding starting at 320 or so removes the majority of it. Work up to around 600 and them buff.
Like magic they are clear again.

If you ever see those ads for clearing up headlights on cars that get dingy , dull and yellowed they use the same process. Sand, polish and wax.
Same church different pew.

Fantastic job, Mark!

Those translucent scales would compliment my K-Translucent brush very nicely, indeed! Biggrin
