Old fashioned scales by Deborah McGrath

Currently unavailable for purchase

This image was taken without flash and hand held in my shearing shed.

The image was changed to sepia and an “early colour” border was added using Corel Media One. Excess white background was removed in photoshop elements and a brown paper bag colour background was added.

    I love old things like this.My wife is going to hang me if I don’t do

    something with it all. LOL! Nice job…………….Michael :)

  • That’s the problem with pieces like this. Having somewhere to put them. These ones at least are actually still in use.

    This is beautifully done! I love that brown paper bag type background! It really adds so much to this lovely old scale! Fantastic work!! xx

  • Thanks Maxy, I’m quiet pleased with the final effect. Although I think I’m going to play some more. These scales provide so much opportunity for creativity.
