    How does a person go about submitting an article to SSWC? Who do you send it to, what do you send it on...burn pics and article to cd and mail with pattern? Any specific format needed for article? And how do I get that cover shot that is one of my goals in life?

    Going to write for us Jeff? Cool. What topics were you going to approach?

    BTW, although I posted a review of the other magazine on the CBD blog, I am not sure if you read it. Congratulations on your first place efforts published in the other magazine.

    Curious to know who you're inspiration was/is when it comes to your intarsia?

    Take care

      Jeff,
      We've got an editorial team that reviews all the submissions and decided which articles to pursue.

      So what we ask people to do is to send us some pictures of your proposed project, and a short outline of what you want to cover.

      The best person to send it to is Shannon Flowers at [email protected]. I'll let her know you'r sending something (I'm familiar with your work and love it <GRIN>).

        would that be a picture of the pattern or the finished piece? I'm building a war dragon, but only just began it today, and only have the head finished as I was taking some notes and photo's on the job. It's a project somewhere between beginner and intermediate, about 75 pieces, no frame, typical free floating intarsia. Basically some instructions and tips, along with the pattern of course...trying not to get too insane that hardly anyone can build it.

          If you have your pattern designed, and can snap a few photos of the process so far, I think that would be enough...We'll probably want photos for each step of the process, and I'd hate for you to have to re-do sections because we need photos!

            Toni...That picture was inspired by research into 16th century marquetry. Otherwise, I have no idea how to explane what inspires me to do the work that I do..meaning the subjects I suppose. I have a big imagination, which relates alot to fantasy which itself is all about imagination. I'm just trying to make the unreal become real ? I don't know...I'm just a hobbyist that some people say is way out of control.

                I've been using the bags from Amazon and a heat gun my wife bought when she was a preschool teacher. Unless you are wrapping of small parts, you don't need a sealer. Just fold it over and hold it with a small piece of scotch tape on the back. After you shrink it it's sealed enough to keep everything...

                My process is a bit different. Since I am using heat shrink bags when you seal the open end you trap a lot of air in them. When you start to heat the bag to shrink it you create a large bubble. I continue to heat the bag until it does pop a hole. I have been doing this for years. The shrink wrap...

                None Linda. You need to find the right heat temp so it shrinks but doesn’t put a hole in the wrap but the tape doesn’t shrink or tear.

                What thickness of film seems to work the best for puzzles?
                The bags seem easier on the surface.
                But the film seems like it is more versatile on size variations.

                Regulations are 150 square feet, this will be 144 square feet so we are good. He’s making it that size Since the sheets are 4’ wide. And the Shelves need to be 4” above my head!! It will be very specific.
