haha thanks guys!
all the nice comments mean a lot!
I thought of doing handles but i prefer the plain look to be honest. By altering it i meant the cheese but i've decided to keep it as it is. I actually gilded it yellow today and it looks LOADS better!
Also i found a rotating tray so when i've done everything ill post some pics. I still need to engrave SQUEAK on it and then it'll be 100% done.
I did some more on my sign today and that should be finished monday too. I started a new piece today and if i can get it done how i want its going to be my new fav piece.
Thanks again guys!
