I think using the clear may make it a little easier to control, certainly worth a try Smiley

Oh brilliant! Thanks for sharing.

Tut, just get it out and throw caution to the wind.  This is probably a good method for a first try Cheesy

If only you knew how hard that was around here! We live right on the coast, and it's very windy (we have an average of 40 gales a year here). The window of my studio does shut (just), but the door has to be ajar to allow my propane hosing to go outside  Wink Let's put it this way; I don't make big hollows on windy days; they explode!

Oooh, that looks worth a try.  I wonder if the stringer is less likley to snap as it has a clear core too. Smiley
