  • 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 did that with Creative Woodworks. But when Bruce's group had their monthly meetings and swaps, somehow or other the ones I didn't buy ended up here! I keep all my holiday ones separate. But I also look at other patterns and think how I can reuse it. But sometimes that is just too much for my brain...

                              Since I refuse to subscribe till they do something about the patterns in the pull out. They even made the DVD tough to print patterns.

                              What I do is look at the index of the book on and if see something I might want to cut I go to Walmart and check out the book. If I like...

                              Absolutely everyone here has made valid points. That's part of what I've liked about this group.....different view points and different ideas. And we respect the diversity. You people rock!

                              I too miss Bob Duncan. I do not think anyone from FC has taken over that role at least on this forum. If they have I am not sure who. Like Betty, I owe a lot to FC and this forum. If it was not for them and this forum I would have probably turned my saw into a boat anchor years ago. Oh how I looked...

                              Yes I would sand all around the hand and feet to give it some depth.
