Finishing the 'Tall Ship' x

OK peeps... here's the last & final blog on the ship.
After finishing the sails, I glued them to the yard arms & also made some pennants from the star voile that I'd used for the sails. 

I decided, right at the last moment, to make some railings for the decks... & that led me to make the curved decorative piece for the bow.
I made the rails from florists wire wrapped in tissue papier mache & then wrapped some of the gold thread on top to finish them of  ~ some pics of this process & more can be found on my FB page in the 'Tall Ship' album ~

Here's the ship ~ I'm so pleased with it :)
