  • 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,

                              My wife and I got the Moderna vaccine with our second shot last week. We had no reaction after the first shot but both of us had some body and fatigue for two days after the 2nd dose.

                              Here in Mid-Michigan, my wife & I (both 65) got our first shot - the Pfizer one - last Sunday; with our second one scheduled for March 21st. Both of us were a little fatigued that evening... went to be early. Next day, just had a sore arm where we received the shot. Hope it's that way with the second...

                              My first creation in intarsia , with a gift from my sister of that little puffin in stained glass. After couple of tests , I created this frame , as in my blue heron, and put the puffin leaving the water and waves, between rocks and with a look to his smiling rock mounster, on a beautiful sunset....
