  • Help with a photo, please!

    I tried making my first portrait, using photo editors. I have never cut one before -- I just started scrolling in October. I thought it worked out ok, but, when I cut them piece, it seems like the girl is sort of skeletal and disconnected. He really looked like "it was him", and she just kind of liked like a girl. It isn't quite ready to give to them, so, I want to try an re-cut it this week.

    Attached is the photo and the pattern I tried. The photo isn't super good quality, because I got it from facebook -- I want this to be a surprise for their wedding this weekend. You can see that it made my pattern look pixelated.

    If anyone has any tips or ideas for me, I could sure use them! And, if anyone has time to help make or modify my pattern, that would be really helpful!

        Hey you guys made some really cool things! Some of them I'm not advanced enough to make. Here is what I ended up doing. I messed up in a few places. and even broke off part of her sleeve, but, for my 2nd portrait ever, I'm happy!

        Thanks for your help!

              Thanks for the info Denny. When I cut acrylic I always use a skip tooth blade at a slower speed. I just did not realize that the epoxy would cut the same way as acrylic so I followed the materials list in the article.

              OK folks, picture. I finally figured out how to upload a picture. Here is one each of my version of the oak and cherry boxes. Note the axle peg holding the top in place but allowing it to move.
