Looks like google images may base64 encode the data, and all browsers I’m using on iOS (safari, chrome, Firefox) aren’t decoding it and displaying the images. Pulled out the laptop (Mac) and still can’t see the encoded images - though your latest upload (imgur) renders fine.

Thanks for the input Mike.  That's frustrating to hear...sounds like Apple related OS's won't process the Google photos.  I'll try to stick with imgur until this gets resolved.

I think I have a good method down for this new paint finish.   Much better than the prototype above.  Will be doing some stress testing this week with it!  Smile

Hmmn... not sure that’s it either. I was able to add/share a photo using google photos and it renders ok.

Sample image

Anyway, looks like you’ve got it sorted.

That looks nice.  I like that color, too.

Thanks Kingfisher.  I do too.  It came out darker than I expected, but it goes well with the grey.  I'm thinking a black accent strip would set it off nicely.

Finishing up a batch of Graphite and Ghost handles...

If anyone is looking to buy a handle only, send me a PM or contact me through the store.  Handles are available and I can also set a knot of your choice if you send it to me.

Thanks for looking and Happy Thanksgiving!

That looks sharp Tom.  What loft did you set the knot at?

Thanks!  A good friend advised me on synthetic knot lofts...between 55 and 56 mm.  Smile

Good advice. My opinion is synthetic is not 2-band Badger, and doesn't belong in crazy low lofts. I'll definitely pick up a handle from you someday Tom! Loving the different types of color variations you're coming up with. Slowly rebuilding my list of remaining 'must have' brushes. Wink

Wait until you guys see the beauty of a brush Tom designed for me. I told him my concept and he took it and ran with it! We still need to decide on just the right knot, and we’re still waiting for the post office to deliver a special item he needs in order to complete the brush, but when he does, Oh, Baby! (I should have sent the part with tracking. It’s been over a week...)
