Title: Uncle Fred's Medals
Post by: sigma9r on January 13, 2016, 11:47:18 am
Hi, all,
Just wanted to share a shadow box I have just completed of my great-uncle's medals.

Very nice display.  Your uncle had a lot of Good Conduct, so it would seem.  One suggestion I would make is to take a loop of tape and use it to pick up all the little bits of debris on the black background.  That is always the hardest part of making a shadow box, especially when the background is black or dark blue.  Your Uncle Fred would be proud, I think.

Nice display.  I am trying to do one for four of my uncles who were in WWII.  It may be a bit too ambitious but if I ever get it don, I'll post a photo of it.
  Back to yours, Currahee has a very good suggestion about the loop of tape.  I can't tell you how many of these I've had to reopen to get that one little piece of lint or cat hair off the black velvet background.  Tape loops are very helpful.
