  • Basset search

    Scrollers,
    Ever since I finished the Black Lab portrait and showed a co-worker, I've been hounded (pun intended) to do a Basset portrait. After a painfully slow search (on a dial-up connection), waiting for too many screens to redraw, I've given up trying to find one. Any leads or links would be appreciated.

    Bruce,

    I checked 3 free pattern sites, with cable modem, and no basset. Maybe someone will offer to design one. I checked Absolutely Free, Free and Scrollsaw Portraits to no avail. If there is another site out there I would like to know about it. However, there is a book available from Sloan's that has 46 dog breed patterns and Basset hound is one of the dogs. It's Fine Line Design book #9 - Dog Breeds by Judy Gale Roberts. It's only $16.95. Considering dogs seem to be my specialty, I'm sure I'll be getting it soon. It should pay for itself after 1 portrait.

    Good luck
    Mike

      Hi Bruce
      Check with a lady named BJ Holms. She is a member of this site and does design work. She might beable to give you a hand.

        I do have a pattern from one of the MSN groups of what I believe is a Basset Hound. At least it looks like onewith it's short stubby legs, the big spot on it's back and the big floppy ears. He is standing in front of a fan with his ears blowing back, and it is labeled 'Feel the Breeze'. I searched the MSN groups and couldn't find it posted or I would have added a link for you. I already emailed the original designer asking if I can share it here and I'm waiting for a reply. I will keep you informed if everything comes back ok.

            Bruce, I emailed 'iworkwithwood2' from MSN AFSP last night about the basset pattern he had posted to the MSN group, but no reply yet. But I was just browsing the MSN AFSP just now and I came across this one of a Basset just posted today. I don't know if it's what you are looking for, but it may be worth a look.

                That is almost exactly like the one that I have, except there is more detail in the fan. Maybe the one I have was removed from that group because it was too much like JayP's design. Hmmm. Makes me wonder...

                    Thanx for all the help. I tried using the link Jim provided, but since I wasn't a member I couldn't get in. Now I have to wait to be "approved" before I can check it out. I sure hope this won't end up with a mountain of spam for my inbox.

                      Bruce,
                      You're all set at AFSP. I just approved your app. There's 5 patterns to choose from, let me know if one of these suit your needs, I just found a patternable picture to work from if you still need one.

                        No worries Bruce. I have been a member for about a month now and gotten zero spam. I loathe spam Once a week you get an e-mail telling you what is new on the site, but for me, nothing else that I didn't solicit
                        There are some excellent resources and free patterns on the site plus some top notch designers who will make a pattern for you if you need it. I see Kevin already offered and he is one of the masters !

                          I understand supporting the magazine and agree. I just do not find many projects that fit my desires.

                          I would like to see them do a poll with subscribers to find out what type projects people want to see....

                          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...
