  • 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

          First off how thick is the board you cut?
          When I want something to stand out I use backer-boards 1/8 thick to get the depth.
          that means you would have to cut the big cutting into pieces to put the spacer behind.
          for instance the cloud bottom right which his hand is on I would put maybe...

          I am stunned at the fact it wasn't rotted or termite destroyed. That must've been one blessed lady. Thank you for what you all are doing!

          Pretty boards. Our Walmart didn't have any when I went. Thank you for sharing though.

          Looking at the image, I would sand down the clouds a bit on the left (as you're looking at it)....to make it look like the clouds on the right are the closest to you. Then with the clouds to the left being less pronounced it will make it look more like he is sitting on them. Humorous design choice...

          I would have to agree that I've not personally made many designs from the magazine, as I have progressed to making most of my own designs. However, I do enjoy some of the reviews and other articles---as well as checking out techniques of others. I debated as well, but decided to renew. Now I just...
