The trident I think is associated with Megaera. Pegasus will look good, although it is a lot of work to paint; Iím sure someone does transfers which can be used

Yep, this is a brilliant analogy!
Thanks, I helped out at a school for 12 years & as my loves
are History & Art I was often trying to find ways of 'getting
the idea' over to pupils.

Or make your own on your inkjet. I find that often the commercial versions available donít fit my needs for repeated designs.

Thanks  Jjonas.  Nice tutorial.   I've done my own shield transfers w decent results.   I do find that some come out fine but others very smudged.   I've not worked out why. Same printer and paper each time.  Anyhow cheaper and more satisfying than commercial transfers.

Iíve found the biggest measure of success or failure is how much or little my clear coat covers. I tend miss the ends so now I try to really cover the whole sheet. The plastic acrylic coating is what keeps them from just dissolving so thicker is the side to err on I think.
