  • My grandson

    I ran out of projects so I decided to try a portrait of my grandson from a photo that I took a couple weeks ago. Isn't he cute? I'm not bragging about myself, I'm bragging about my awesome grandson. Age - 4 1/2 months. Cheap Walmart frame. BB ply - 1/4".

    That's great! He is a cute one. I am working on a pattern of my grandson that will be turning a year old next week. I hope I can get it done by then.

          Ya know, I think grandson will like that cutting when he gets old enough to appreciate it! Really nice job. Any special techniques for converting the photo to a pattern?

            Thanks for the compliments, friends.

            Mike, I use PSP X and mainly used the threshold command and the paintbrush for adding and taking away. I enrolled in Pattern Academy, which is a free pattern tutorial offered by the MSN site, Free Scrollsaw Patterns. I learned a lot but haven't done much with it yet. Actually, this is the first human portrait I've attempted since taking the course.

              You ran out of projects, yeah, right. As if that ever happens. You were just aching to get at that picture. Now, admit up.

              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.

                    Yup, he's a good looking grandson and a bit on the happy side I'd say. Oh, and good job on the pattern and cutting too Mike.

                            Is there a way I can turn my pictures into patterns like this. And can it be done without spending a bunch of money Im new to the art of scrollsawing, and would love to do some works of my daughter

                              He’s the one with the patience. At least i don’t ricochet off the walls as much as I used to! We certainly proved opposites attract. How dull life would be if we were the same.

                              Glad to hear he is getting back on track. After seeing what my wife went through, after her fall, I wouldn't wish rehab or PT on anyone.

                              It will sit on the coffee table for a couple of weeks/months - Until I finish the next one. Then it get relegated to the collection to await the next craft show. Or it may go to the art gallery for a few months.
