Somebody knows... Maybe you?
I'll do the last shamrock when I can. I've taken the marks out of the coin, looks good, all the letters need to be edged next. The shamrock next to the coin had been applied slightly wrong at the factory so I corrected it.

not if the cracks in the paint cause the section tool to break all the fillable areas in to tiny sections,often a few pixels across, is there some reason why you always suggest Im doing things wrong on this site? please feel free to take over the job if you want to give the man the time and effot
I guess your talking about the posts regarding the Jennings Penny Star? https://pennymachines.co.uk/Forum/vi ... 1&start=10coppinpr wrote:is there some reason why you always suggest Im doing things wrong on this site?
If I see things written here that I know are incorrect, or think could be incorrect then I'm going to speak up, doesn't matter who makes the claims if I think they're wrong. I did ask you for proof of your claims.
This is what the paint bucket tool excels at. All you need is a solid outline and then you can fill in the inside with any colour you want very quickly. There are multiple ways to get the same result but this tool is one of the few I bother with use as speeds up the process no end. I'm not saying there aren't jobs that don't take hours and hours, usually due to poor quality artwork in the beginning.coppinpr wrote:not if the cracks in the paint cause the section tool to break all the fillable areas in to tiny sections,often a few pixels across
no Im actually talking about the last three years, but forget that its not importantI guess your talking about the posts regarding the Jennings Penny Star
what im saying is you cant get a solid outline over a large area on this piece,I do ,of course, use the "fill" tool combined with the selection tool to get a solid outline,because the paint has degraded to many colours and the flakes are so small its often necessary to flood fill very tiny areas,this takes time, then there is the even smaller areas the flood wont grab,plus the flakes of other colour paint that has migrated to the area your working on,then there is item outline which has degraded into a brown smudge and has to be re lined, you may well be able to do it in 5 mins,,,I cant, Like I said you want to do it,thats fine with me
I'd like to add I'm grateful either way, I've had the machine 10 years and it's stood in the corner most of that time with me wondering if I'd ever get it finished and within days of finding this site things are happening. Thanks to this forum, for all the input, the good work and what I've seen so far is amazing.
I had nothing to do today so re-edged the letters and finished the top glass as far as I can. It's up to you now if you want to use it, it's in the site's Resources section both face up and flipped for printing. If you want me to look at the belly glass and no one wise comes forward let me know in two weeks time (I'm in Morocco and Sicily till then).
