How do we know you don't own a giant 20 pence piece Zippo? :D

You should have done it next to your finger; although I'd probably have accused you of having a giant finger :lol:

I don't suppose there was enough left over for soup...? :stirthepot:

You usually pay extra for miniaturisation!

I was getting fed up with customers asking if I could get their inscription on whatever item it was I was being expected to engrave - I always explain that I CAN engrave it, it's more a question of whether they can read it without strong glasses.
So last week, when it cropped up again, I engraved the customers required text in miniature, and presented it to him with a pair of tweezers when he came to collect...! :lol:

That is a one pence piece there for comparison, and no Tone, it is NOT a giant penny!

My next project is going to be the Lords Prayer on a disc the size of a 2 pence piece!
By the way - I need a very small drill for brass... any ideas? :D

I’d have thought you could buy some sort of spark erosion or lazar thingimebob theses days Ernest. At the other extreme I think it’s fascinating how they make giant pictures. There was one covering the Town Hall in Birmingham for years while it underwent a refurb and it looked like the building itself complete with pillars etc. That Buchanan guy on Art Attack was brilliant how he could spread sand, deck chairs and bits of stuff on the ground and from an aerial view it looks like a face or something.

If you’d got a second tomato Zipps would that make it a tomtom? What’s red but can’t be seen? No tomatoes. Why did the tomato blush? Because it saw the salad dressing. What did the fast tomato say to the slow tomato? You go on ahead, I’ll ketchup.

That’s all the tomato jokes I can remember. :D

:coat:

You don't know :lol: but trust me if I wanted to cheat :evil: knocking it up in photoshop would have been easy peasy and a whole lot easier than finding a giant 20 pence :D

I have in the past been accused of having hands like JCB shovels :lol:

Ummm I do actually have a scalpel to hand, can be very useful can a scalpel :twisted: :lol:

Didn't taste of anything tbh, but was a fully formed tomato inside, quite amazing really :D
