    I'll try to find and link back to some threads on it. I did one or two and Richard (Geezer) has done some also.
    I will give it a try bout the head and shoulders are not there to bring back. looks like thy were honed off

    If that's the case then it may be too late already. It looked pretty good from what I could see in the pictures. Sometimes good things are just lost. Sucks when it's like that but for future reference that is a good method to know.

    I know the photo lighting was not that great but you see what I could see IRL.
    The top 2/3s of the head was not there at all. I really didn't do much sanding at all on these and that one needed it the most.
    You can see the scratches still there in the photo of them clean.

    I agree it would have been nice to save but it is beyond that at this point.

    Here are a couple I did. The first is stamp darkening. The second is a good example of how an etching can be enhanced. I did that one exactly the way I described earlier. Geezer does a really good how to somewhere.

    Looks nice. I will keep it in mind for next time. Or even on the etching in the tank on #3

    Thank you.
