For a moment Aragorn gazed in silence, but fearing that she would pass aways and never be seen again, he called to her crying, Tinúviel, Tinúviel! even as Beren had done in the Elder Days long ago. Then the maiden turned to him and smiled, and she said: “Who are you? And why do you call me by that name?” And he answered: “Because I believed you to be indeed Lùthien Tinúviel, of whom I was singing. But if you are not she, then you walk in her likeness.” “So many have said,” she answered gravely. “Yet her name is not mine. Though maybe my doom will be not unlike hers.” (The Return of the King, Appendix A: The Tale of Aragorn and Arwen)


So here’s a tip for smoothing down worbla/wonderflex edges:

Take the heated tip of your hot glue gun and pass it over the raised edges where you have joints in wonderflex and worbla until it’s niiiice and smoth! I find that a hot glue gun tip works best because soldering irons get too hot.  See how in the first picture the edges are raised along the frame and in the second one, they’re blended nicely in?  

This way you don’t have to take the heat gun and inadvertently heating up the entire piece and getting it out of shape while you try to melt one tiny, localized area.
