I have spent a further 22 hours (so far!) trying and failing at different methods to a: enlarge his face and b: give it the distressed look of the original. So far, no joy. I haven't been photographing the process because I have (wrongly) assumed each time that it would work.
So unfortunately, you can't learn from the carnage. That said, I brought it to last night's Drunken Quilters meeting and Jennie Wood had some GREAT ideas which we're going to try out at her place tomorrow night.
I promise to photograph that process.
And then, the large new piece that I was working on has ALSO gone awry. I'll show you pics of that tomorrow... haven't had a chance to upload.
