  • Id be greatfull for any help

    Hi folks,
    Yet another newbi, I’ve just set 2 pictures on the boards I’ve been doing scroolsawing for 2 years now and making my own patterns. Please take a look at my pictures and feel free to criticise them I wont mind if they are harsh since the only way to learn is to be offered advice. I should say that the picture with the gentleman with the beard has to much varnish on it. I tried to use a new technique whereby I over sprayed the picture with varnish and left it there for a few moments the wiped the excess off then after it was dry I re varnished it, obviously it didn’t work, advice on how to create shadow using varnish would be helpful. Sorry this is a long intro. by the way I live in the UK Wales to be precise, so if there is any auk scrollers looking at this I would like to be in contact with you , so maybe we can set up a club. To my other potential friends in the scroll saw world a big hi and thanks for any help.

    Many thanks

    Steve or Taffy its up to you

    You've certainly got a lot of ability with the saw. Those pictures look very impressive, although it's difficult to pass a comment because the photographs are rather small.

    What saw do you use for your work, and what material are the portraits cut from?

    There is no opinion, however absurd, which men will not readily embrace as soon as they can be brought to the conviction that it is readily adopted.

        Taffy, I am impressed with your work. I would like to know more about the one you call "Hard Work". The finish is really interesting and the portrait seems to come to life. What materials/finishes did you use? Welcome to the forum. Look forward to seeing more of your efforts and hearing your opinions.

            So many are selling them here it’s not worth us making them. However, we do very well with our dough boards. Nobody else makes them. We have an order for a dough board and matching pepper grinder. The walnut board I could make into a beautiful basket or two and sell for lots more than they are getting...

            I use #7 on my younger kid puzzles. Easier for them to put together.

            I did forget to mention he cut a finger on his left hand with the bandsaw. Just took skin off. Lucky again. Told him he was calling 911 next time.

            Jim, if you scroll down to the bottom of the page, on the left you’ll find some style options that change the font size and color. I’ve been using Defalt vB5 Style, and it seems to be about the best for my iPad, but I’m still experimenting with my iMac.
