Grip making ain't as easy as it looks!

    I've been working with the Sculpey stuff trying to make some grips like Moptop did in this thread:


    It's been quite a learning curve for me, and I've still got a ways to go. Here's one panel on one of my Walkers. I messed up the other panel while sanding the base.


    As you can see the fit on the top isn't quite right. Maybe I'll get it right one of these days.

    First thing I learned is your plaster of paris must have a smooth surface so you can cut the Sculpey flush with the plaster before removing.

    You ain't kidding Pulp, just today finished "every day" grips for my daughter's .45 Lady Derringer. I started with a scrap of tiger wood, band saw, electric sander then a lot of hand work.
