As I was reducing this heart cane the other day I was a bit worried wondering if maybe I should have over exaggerated the arrow. It's a given that larger round canes reduce a little disproportionately. In the end the core always manages to shrink about a third less than the perimeter. But you can compensate for this by pumping up the volume on the outer walls. I actually like the way this came out in the long run. The plumpness of the heart image – and it's cartoon style – complements the petite little arrow. Lucky break! Maybe that had something to do with the shamrock!
