    Flush Panel

    Fitted:


    Xtant cutout (I used styrofoam and an exacto knife):

    Like the pincushion?

    Wrapped (I outlined the styrofoam with a pencil to give it definition):


    Glassed (only one layer):



    This is everything so far. I'll keep posting pics as I move along.

    Thanks in advance for any and all input.
