  • Fonts?

    Wondering what fonts work best for scrolling. I'm assuming that by using computer fonts they can be scaled to fit the project, but are there any that are "naturals" for scrolling?

    fonts

    I use a link called www.identifont.com. I look for fonts with open bowls, where the round part connects to the vertical posts.
    You can also search for stencil fonts. Most stencil fonts require two holes drilled per letter with a hole in the middle, like "o" and "a"
    I also like a font that I have on a brass template from Plaid products (scrapbooking)
    They call the font JAZZ, but it isnt the same as the JAZZ fonts I have found online. The beauty of it is the fact you only have to drill one hole per letter.

    I also like to look for symbol fonts and windings. you can get some great project ideas from these fonts.

      Carole, only you would cut sprinkles on a scrollsaw. I would probably use rice and stain it. I just gave up replacing my insert. Its worn, but works for what I need. I do sand it to make sure there are no burrs sticking up to scratch the wood. I will be trying the new contact paper when mine runs...

      Thick hair would need a larger opening, thinner hair would require a smaller opening to stay in place. The one being shown in the utube would probably work for thicker hair. They look way better than a pencil or dowel! That elephant sure is cute in her hair!.
