wuhu ... very nice pictures ... I love the heraldic of the shields and have one question:
I see some shields are painted by hand but others are so full of details ... do they have stickers?
And if yes ... where to buy those stickers and how to fix them on this tiny shields?

merci

Thanks..
Some of the shields are hand painted but I stopped doing this about a year ago..too much work. Instead I search the web (watch out for copyright) and download the pics, import onto word as a picture insert..resize and make a shhet of them. It may take one or two attempts to get the right size. Once that is done, cut out the shield design you want, leaving a good border around it, glue this to thin card. On the back of the card I glue wood grain pattern on the back. The woodgrain pattern you can also find on the web and resize as with the shield designs.
When it is all dry, cut carefully around the shiled pattern. There will be a very thin white edging all around the shield. To hide this, use the side of a felt tip pen.
The whole process is very similar to the one I use to make Pavisen
