Earth, moon and stars rod finished
Here is the 12 ft surf rod I posted a few weeks ago finally finished. I kept the guide wraps simple and clean. I added a few pics of the material I used under the purple metalic to make the pattern. From some one else naming it (from the last post) I now call this surf rod my "Lucky Charm" rod.

I think I posted this on your first post on the lucky charms, but I have been working on wrapping a Dragonscale like wrap over raised stick on letters. I bought two sheets/different types of letters, and tried both...but it did not come out well.
I think that while a crescent moon (ie shape) is easy to "see" letters are a bit more difficult. I could not tell the difference between the lower case "e" and "o"....
But your shapes look clean and easy to see.
I how a ringed planed like Saturn would look, or the ring around Uranus (the planet) ?

G almost every post you are good for a laugh or two. With these shapes some have holes in them and you can see that when wraped. I used "A" size thread and it was very difficult to cover the shapes so they did not show through some did. But on the ones that have holes or there is a clover shape and the relief cuts that do show through. Would be cool to see the letters.

Came out real nice, but you gotta' catch something with it to tell if it's "charmed" or not.
