  • Thanks Toni

    Thanks for giving me the courage to attempt segmentation.I usually do fretwork.I was so inspired by Hecam that I had to try this pattern for myself.I hope I did your pattern justice.The sand shading effect is so cool.This pattern and technique was so much fun. Of course the kids thought I was crazy trying to fry sand. But they loved the outcome.I will definetly be trying both again.I never would have thought of it. I hope I was able to upload the pics. Thanks again

    Derek, this came out looking great! I'm going to have to give it a try myself.
    Thanks for sharing.

      Ah shucks....

      Thanks Derek!

      You did a great job on Hecam!

      Sue and I are pleased you tried the sand shading technique too! We had fun with this project and Hecam is an adorable personality... we love seeing what others do with him.

      You made us both smile with your comment on segmentation. I do enjoy hearing from folks who try it and are so encouraged to try another.

      As for frying sand - ah yes, the first time I did this the kids came in the kitchen and looked over my shoulder " I an NOT eatting THAT" lol. So much for my baking that day. Giggle

      Be proud of your Hecam... we are. I'll be adding him to the gallery when I update this week!

      Take care

        Rolf when you say taper from right to left, do you mean thinner near the body and thicker at the end of cloud as on the wing ?
        And on each cloud touching the body ?
        I had already sand some part , will show show soon!

        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!
