  • Branches in low relief

    Ok, I'm doing a grape vine in low relief, how ever, I need to know how to round onver the branches(they kinda twist and turn).

    Thanks all.

    CarverDude, when I do vines and branches, I leave them flat topped and square sided until I get the grounding complete. I then take a small, detail knife and begin to cut the edges off, creating an irregular, rounded surface. Remember, branches and vines are not a nice round section. If you want to add more detail, use a woodburner set fairly low and burn lines parallel to the length of the branch or vine. Make them of varying length and spacing, making sure some of them twist over the top of the branch. Practice this on some scrap before you do it on your project. It's not that difficult.

        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.

        As a framer, we have a shrinker wrapper at ArtCrafters. Very simple. Film on a roller, sealer attached, just roll off enough film, seal the film, insert object, seal other end and shrink with a heat gum. We also use Uline as a source. Not sure where our unit can from as it was with the shop when...

        I would make the shed 1" less than the size permits are required for. THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS TOO MUCH SPACE....
