Several days ago progress on one of the larger works came to a grinding halt due to a technical issue. A tiny detail, admittedly, but one which stopped me in my tracks and which could potentially have repercussions for other pieces. I have been scratching my head looking for ways to address it: the various solutions I came up with were either (variously) fiddly, time-consuming, or criminally inelegant. One promising solution (i.e. not fiddly, not time-consuming, and satisfyingly elegant) just didn't work. Bottoms. I'm pleased to say that I have now come up with a solution which isn't terribly time-consuming and which will work very well. Onwards….
