Now I have the strange urge to get myself a fedora and a whip...

I whipped together some prayer slips.



One of my Dark Heresy characters has an obsession with them, so I figured, they would make a great giveaway. I'll only need to carve a small seal, I already have black seal wax at hand.

They cost nearly nothing, you just need some paper (from two A4 sheets I made 50 slips, though take care to make them wide enough so you can roll them easily ), Latin prayers written in some nice gothic font, some yarn or cord and sealing wax.

I have a whole box of soapstone here (long story), I'll carve some different seals, and maybe even get wax in different colours.

All in all, even if I count generously:

1 DINA4 sheet of paper - 5 US cents
1 piece of sealing wax enough for 25 small seals - 1,50 dollars (but you can get a whole pound for 10 dollars)
yarn or cord - 1 dollar (but that will be enough for all eternity)
printing - well, it costs nothing if you have a printer at home

That's 2,55 for 25 pieces (if you don't have to buy the cord it's 1,55), so it's ca 5-10 cents for a piece. And you can use anything you like to press into the wax.

I was wrong. One of these seal waxes is enough for 50 tiny seals! My only problem is that it's too thin when molten, or maybe I just don't have the patience. That black thing you see is how you can buy this kind of wax (though I'll most probably will find another brand).



I'm not satisfied with the seal, but I'm not really used to carving such tiny things, not to speak of not having the proper tools for it.



Only one throne for your salvation, ladies and gentlemen!

I'm not satisfied with the bag... I'll most probably have to stick in pieces of duplex to keep it in shape, and that does not make me happy.

I added the chains today:


I think I will hang something small on the belt between the two hangers of the bag (lots of space), the chains need some weathering, and the "book" more embellishments.

I'm thankful for everything that might be of help.

Though my problem lies with the size (I hate working small).

If you don't have one, get a hands free magnifier.  They do wonders for your ability to work small.

Also, a lot of office store sells a hands free magnifier, with clamps to hold the project, and a natural light simulant bulb/lamp to help illuminate it.

I will use this sewing pattern for the coat:




Only that I will leave off the various little bits, I'll have a different collar and folded back wide cuffs, and I'll change the front panel so it can be worn in two ways, either as a double breasted coat, or when both panels are folded back and buttoned on their own sides, as an open coat.

More like this:


The breast panels will be wider and straighter than the civil war types.
