  • Intarsia & Segmentation

    Hello All,
    Could someone explain the difference between Intarsia & segmentation?
    Is there a difference or is it just a preference for how different scrollers refer to their work?
    Thanks

    Hi Marsha:
    I started scrolling late last year and fell in love with doing "Intarsia". I like cutting and shaping various woods to form a picture. I have done 3 patterns and two more in the making. See my gallery. My quilt contribution was also Intarsia.

    I often asked myself a similiar question as you posted. I think I found the best basic answer at :
    http://www.woodworking.org/WC/GArchi...egmentrev.html
    in the "Review" paragraph. I hope this helps explain it for you. Both Intarsia and Segmentation can range from the simple to complex. Simple segmentation can be done with MDF and painted. Intarsia uses the natural color and grain effects of the wood.

    I see you are in Hamilton - just down the highway from me in Whitby. Small world! Drop me a PM if you have any specific Intarsia questions. I will share my experiences.

      My understanding is that Segmentation is using the one piece of timber to cut the pieces out (pieces easily fit back in place) you then shape them like intarsia and either paint or stain to get the desired colours.

      Intarsia is using seperate pieces of timber to get the desired colours through the piece, you shape them etc, just harder to get a good fit with the pieces.
