  • Angel in Prayer

    I just finished these 2 ornaments today. They are by John Nelson and they are in the Holiday issue of this magazine.
    They are made from 1/8" BB, I put 3 coats of white paint and 1 coat of silver glitter on them. They need to be handled with care, wouldn't take much to break them.

    I wondered why the baseball was getting bigger. Then it hit me!

    Wow Bob, those are really nice, and fragile. Unfortunately, the glitter didn't show up in the photo, but I'll bet that really makes them sparkle.

    Thanks for sharing.

            Those were ornaments I handled very carefully when photographing...John Martin cut if from oak...and I was so scared I'd drop it and break it! But they are so beautiful!

                      I really did not see just how intricate they were until I compared them with the grain of wood they are sitting on!

                        When I was getting ready to take a picture of them I saw this piece of walnut and I think it showed them off pretty good.

                            When a work lifts your spirits and inspires bold and noble thoughts in you, do not look for any other standard to judge by: the work is good, the product of a master craftsman.

                                Yes. Like Linda said you want it to appear that the angel is sitting on the cloud....

                                Rolf when you say taper from right to left, do you mean thinner near the body and thicker at the end of cloud as on the wing ?
                                And on each cloud touching the body ?
                                I had already sand some part , will show show soon!

                                Thanks

                                I did that with Creative Woodworks. But when Bruce's group had their monthly meetings and swaps, somehow or other the ones I didn't buy ended up here! I keep all my holiday ones separate. But I also look at other patterns and think how I can reuse it. But sometimes that is just too much for my brain...

                                Since I refuse to subscribe till they do something about the patterns in the pull out. They even made the DVD tough to print patterns.

                                What I do is look at the index of the book on scrollsawer.com and if see something I might want to cut I go to Walmart and check out the book. If I like...

                                Absolutely everyone here has made valid points. That's part of what I've liked about this group.....different view points and different ideas. And we respect the diversity. You people rock!
