  • My First Portrait

    I have been so inspired by all of you who design your own patterns! It seems that I sit nightly (or daily if I am working nightshift) trying to make my own patterns too...determined to get one right. I finished this pattern today with Corel Draw and think it turned out alright. I cut it out of 1/4" flooring ply and backed it with a piece of walnut. Now....how in the world do I frame and finish it?

    Thanks for looking...and advice!!

    Tammy

    Oh...and the picture I posted with my project was the one I used of my Granddaughter while she was playing with my Dad.

        Thank you for your kind comments. I thought that I'd post the actual finished product now. My hubby helped me figure out how to cut framing for it. Tammy

              I've been using the bags from Amazon and a heat gun my wife bought when she was a preschool teacher. Unless you are wrapping of small parts, you don't need a sealer. Just fold it over and hold it with a small piece of scotch tape on the back. After you shrink it it's sealed enough to keep everything...

              My process is a bit different. Since I am using heat shrink bags when you seal the open end you trap a lot of air in them. When you start to heat the bag to shrink it you create a large bubble. I continue to heat the bag until it does pop a hole. I have been doing this for years. The shrink wrap...

              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.
