this morning, I got up and put 210 scales onto strips of blue tape and then face down into a casserole dish full of ferric chloride. after that, I went to the metals room and forgot my cheesecake again while I cleaned and then treated the scales with liver of sulphur. here was the result:

after those were done, I scrubbed the tips with steel wool to mimic aging over the symbols, and then proceeded to weave about 175 or so of my batch onto the shirt. I didn't realise I wove so many until after I noticed that I only had about 40 or so scales left in my little paper nest. time sure flies when I'm weaving ("it does not" says my aching neck).

I got a skirt in the mail today, it's really cute.
