    LOVE THOSE FISH!!!! They are sooooo cool.

    Two questions: what base coat did you apply to the mdf? or did you?
    what did you use for the scales? I can't tell from the pictures just what the scales are defined with.

    Another fantastic creation, I'm in awe of your talent.

      Hi Kim - Whacky eh! I guess you could say that is a spot on description - LOL!

      I love your work and the patience and detail as well at the colour combinations you use are really inspiring and a positive joy to see.

      MDF often gets bad press so it's great to see what use you can put it to with some wild imagination and creativity.

      Thanks for another great share.

        My my Kim, lovely job.

        I'm intrigued by the base coat too. Also whenever I use mdf I end up with a crumbly cut edge which never seems to sand as good, so I wonder what you do there.
        Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.

                          Kim, those are fantastic ! Just no words for them. You are the only Artist I know of, that can do that kind of Art, & do it so well. " BUT " I only have one thing to say about the colors. Did you say NO PURPLE? That first one looks very purple to me, HA ! Keep up the great work. Take Care

                              My father was diagnosed with Alzheimer's this last summer. We had to move him into a nursing home because he couldn't take care of himself anymore. He used to run a successful wood shop. He made shooting benches, picnic tables, porch swings, among other things. My cousin bought his property so we...

                              Hi Jim - a long while back I did a series of ebonizing tests using the steel wool and vinegar method on a variety of woods. On white oak the color turns out to be a light grey. On red oak its a much darker grey black. To get the best out of ebonizing i.e. the blackest coloration the wood needs t o be...

                              Having just viewed my official invitation to receive my first Covid19 jab this coming week I had a little chuckle to myself over the name and logo the government has adopted for the folks who will administer the vaccinations.

                              Might be. I am going to be making a sign using oak plywood and I think I may want the background a tone other than the oak. May explore other veneers as well.
