  • Something for myself

    I decided last night that since I've spent the last few months making things for other folks either for gifts or from orders I received I would take some time and make something for myself.

    Carl, does this look familiar? I wanted to add to my ever growing polar bear collection.

    I haven't put a finish or a background on it. I do have some fun foam in a light blue that really set it off, so I may just clear it as is and then put the background in. I don't think I'm going to frame it, I kind of like it without the frame but that could change once I get a finish on it.

    That sends shivers up my spine Way cool
    I was thinking of sending you one with an iceberg as a background something like the Sorel boots logo.

    I just never got around to doing it....always the best intentions...never the best timing.

    You have done a great job on it. The blue will really give it a kick!

          Thanks, folks

          Carl actually sent this to me a few weeks ago. It's from a company logo. I only used the polar bear portion. It was quite easy to do and probably took all of 10 minutes.

              I think I'll keep this also

              I too seem to give everything away that I cut out, but I saw this pattern in one of the lastest editions to the Scroll Saw Magazine and I am staring to try and cut it you can see it is still a works in progress

                None Linda. You need to find the right heat temp so it shrinks but doesn’t put a hole in the wrap but the tape doesn’t shrink or tear.

                What thickness of film seems to work the best for puzzles?
                The bags seem easier on the surface.
                But the film seems like it is more versatile on size variations.

                Regulations are 150 square feet, this will be 144 square feet so we are good. He’s making it that size Since the sheets are 4’ wide. And the Shelves need to be 4” above my head!! It will be very specific.

                As a framer, we have a shrinker wrapper at ArtCrafters. Very simple. Film on a roller, sealer attached, just roll off enough film, seal the film, insert object, seal other end and shrink with a heat gum. We also use Uline as a source. Not sure where our unit can from as it was with the shop when...

                I would make the shed 1" less than the size permits are required for. THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS TOO MUCH SPACE....
