  • Witchy Woman

    Just finished this for my daughter. She loves Halloween.

    It's called Witch"s Brew Layerscape by Lora S. Irish in the Fall 2006 Issue 24 of the magazine.

    I cut it with 1/8 inch BBP and used 1/8 inch BBP spacers. I painted with acrylic. I made the frame out of an old board I found in my barn. For the back ground I Goggled forest fires and got some terrific pictures and just printed one off and glued it go the last layer.

    So there you go. Thanks for lookin'.

        Bill - Great Job & just in time for Halloween.
        I cut that same pattern a long time ago & mine also has a black middle layer. I put it in a lighted shadow box. But it is only looks good when it's lit. I like your background a lot.

                I love your background treatment and frame. And now I have another one to put on the must cut immediately list. Can you also provide an extra 3-4 hours per day and an extra day or two per week?

                  I really like that one. Funny but I have just cut that one out but it is not finished. I like the way you put in the shadows of the tree on the last layer. I don't think I can paint that well. Thanks for sharing.

                        Nice job Bill, I like it a lot.

                        Thanks for the insight into the background - it's a useful idea to have in the bank.
                        Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.

                          I've cut this pattern a couple times. It always comes out looking nice. I've used a sheet of scrapbooking paper with a starry night sky pattern on it for a background.

                                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....
