  • Cheesy Yard Art

    My latest creation. Ignore the background. I had just gotten him glued up and didn't want to move him. His mouth and eyes glow in the dark.

    A request from a friend of mine. Now just for a clear coat and then it gets tangled in orange lights and he's done.

    Off to Lowes for more plywood. Oh, and need to order some blades from Mike too so I can make more Cheesy Yard Art.

        Kelly. When you clear coat it for outdoor use, what do you apply? How long does it protect the paint, and does it STAY clear (no yellowing)? Looks nice. dale (a nudder cheesehead)

          I actually would be proud to put that "Cheesy Yard Ornament" on my front steps for Holloween. You did a great job on the paint.

              Dale,

              Normally, I would have the hubby clear coat it with automotive clear. It's has a serious UV stablizer in it and would last about as long as a paint job on a car.

              But I didn't want that much of a shine on the cat so I found a clear coat aerosol at Home Depot for indoor/outdoor projects with a UV protectant. It says it's not supposed to yellow and I'm not sure how long it will last. I figure she may need to recoat it in a couple of years to keep it looking good. Or I should say, she'll get me to recoat it in a couple of years. I think the clear coat I found was a Minwax product. I know I found something by Olympic at Lowes online but I was right at Home Depot and found something comparable. The Winfield Collection has their own variety just for these types of things, but I didn't want to wait a week or two for it to arrive and I don't think it comes in aerosol.

              To everyone else, thanks for the kind words. I must say this was a fun project. My favorite part is when he glows in the dark. Looks just like a chesire cat.

                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....

                I shrink wrap all my puzzles. It is the best method I have found. I do not use a cardboard backer as some do. I use shrink wrap bags that I get from Amazon or Ebay. 8" x 12" will fit 95% of the puzzles I make.

                To use the bags you will need a sealer. I have one very similar...
