  • First scrolls - ornaments

    Hi all,

    These are my very first and I like them. If you have pointers, don't mince words. I learnt a great deal as I was doing them. They are made of plexyglass and frosted by hand, the wooden one is cherry (before varnish).

    Should do better as I go.

    Merry Christmas, Happy New Year

        Hey Cat, those look great! What a brave soul cutting your new teeth on Plexiglas, as it is not an easy medium to cut!

                  Thanx all, I'm very shy about showing my stuff, there are cuts I could have made better, more stable. I frosted the plexyglass with 220 sandpaper lightly rubbing in tight cirles.

                  The shoe by the way is a ``glass`` slipper to a friend who collects shoes.

                  Take care,

                              I've been using the bags from Amazon and a heat gun my wife bought when she was a preschool teacher. Unless you are wrapping of small parts, you don't need a sealer. Just fold it over and hold it with a small piece of scotch tape on the back. After you shrink it it's sealed enough to keep everything...

                              My process is a bit different. Since I am using heat shrink bags when you seal the open end you trap a lot of air in them. When you start to heat the bag to shrink it you create a large bubble. I continue to heat the bag until it does pop a hole. I have been doing this for years. The shrink wrap...

                              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.
