  • 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

                              Cute Pattern.
                              I have good success treating the wood with spry shellac before cutting. There will not be a problem painting the pieces with craft paint over the shellac. As previously said, just be sure to keep the paint off of the cut edges. If you want to seal the craft paint, a light spray coat...

                              This is the puzzle, for some reason I usualy make my puzzels with thicker stock, sometimes 3/4 oak or pine or poplar. I have made puzzels in the past I just wanted to get some fresh ideas on blades and finish. I like the idea of applying shellac first that is if the paint sitll covers...

                              No more waiting for weeks to start therapy. The sooner you use the replacement the better. Bruce was doing mild hand exercises the day after his surgery and bending slightly at the elbow. They expected him in pt for at least 6-9 months. He stopped in February and is doing home therapy, like lifting...
