Thread: Do we have a paper patch picture thread?

  1. #1

    Do we have a paper patch picture thread?

    Do we?

    Of all the picture thread out there I think a paper patch one would be pretty cool.

    I don't remember the alloy but it was quite soft. It looks like it was fired into water saturated wool padding.

    Nice! I've been thinking of getting a .451 or so PP mould. Any suggestions? Is that the BACO one?

    Switch to IMGUR for posting pics. Super easy.
    All you have to do is click on the picture you want... click on what size in the bottom right section (i usually do large thumbnail) then click not the copy button near the bb link code.
    Paste in the text box here and press post.
