Day eighteen: Edges & alignment

 

Cornice edges

Cornice edges in old houses aren’t always straight!

Today, the objective is to an edge — a straight line, a narrow ridge, a precipice.

In an old house, built on clay – it is amazing that this plaster cornice is intact (mostly).  Fortunately there are not too many of them – making them a feature rather than a dreaded dust-catching nightmare! I haven’t put the spirit level on the edge to actually see how straight it is – but the picture editing grid was great to check alignment.
