  • Some kittens

    I feel I have made more progress since my last post, most certainly with materials. The internet is such a blessing when there are certain things we need and with some determination and some good fortune I have found exactly what I need to improve my portrait work. I have the finishes just right now and yesterday I managed to get some frames with a deep enough recess on the back so I can keep the glass in as well as the 3/16th birch ply and the 3/16th MDF backing board.

    Cutting the kittens was very time consuming but I cheated a little, I stack cut 3 of them together and because it was a little fragile I used 2inch blue tape to hold the stack together and cover the front and then glued the pattern on. I enlarged the pattern so it would fit just nice into the 8 x 10 frame. I used ultra reverse number three blades on the kittens and must have used six at least.

        Very nice, good finish and I like the dog pic. Have been experimenting with a portrait of my own two dogs, made a start on the pattern for the dog, just need to do one for the *****.

          I tried a house vac once for a dust collector. It was prone to clogging the lines and when I tried to put a cyclone can on it the vacuum collapsed the garbage can.

          I found this pattern in Steves catalog and freehanded a vase form. This one may appeal to the folks that bought the butterfly vase.

          Sorry took so long to answer. The brown vase I added butterfly instead of doing wood burning. Wanted to keep them so they would appeal to several people. I sold all of them to a flower shop....
