    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.

                  Any idea how many dots? I cannot imagine doing that kind of detailed work!

                          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

                              Cutting a straight line I get it started then plant my thumb at the side of the piece and use that to stabilize the cutting path, a bit like the pin you would use on a bandsaw when resawing old style.

                              We went to Groff & Groff yesterday. Purple Heart wood is stuck on a boat somewhere. They said imported exotic and hardwoods are stuck on boats. So if you see a wood you need, grab it while you can.

                              He has 4 of the long ones, but we have other sizes that he uses for clamping up his cheese board slicers, another good seller. They go for $35, left over wood from dough board. On late shift yesterday because I took a 2 hour nap around 7. Off to the saw! I have 8 days of shows in 2 weekends! And one...

                              What Carole said. The lips are 1 1/2”, holds the board to the counter and keeps the flour from going off the back. After gluing them to the board, he drilled stainless screws through the lip into the board and made plugs to fill the holes. The board is 3/4” thick. Since he only has 4 large Bessy...
