  • Question about Intarsia, Segmenting and contouring

    When I go to Google and search for intarsia and click on image, I don't see nothing what has to do with contouring or segmenting. The same when asking for contouring.
    It is getting a little confussing for me what you folks all mean with the different names.
    I hope that someone can explain the difference after they have cecked it on different sites.
    I hope that I'm not the only one about the above.

    I do not know why there is a big to do on what people call what. Intarsia if you want to call it segmentation then so be it, so can marquetry be called segmentation, you can call inlaying segmentation. You can call 3D layering segmentation. As far as contouring just means sandinding to define edges. Some edges need more contouring or sanding than others. Why all this complication with terms? Intarsia does not only have to apply to wood but can be applied to knitting as I am sure those who do this know. You can also apply this term to paper designs. Just an observation on hang-ups on terms. As we went through with art and skilled.

        I agree 100%.
        I try not to get hung up on the terms, I really don't think it is worth arguing about. Is it scroll work, is it fret work? All I know is if I am looking for examples, I google every possible thing I can think of. I like to search with the image option., although sometimes it is best to make the search options filtered, there are certainly crossed terms out there
