      you did a nice job...

      but it looks a little to glossy...
      did you use a gloss clear coat or take the picture while it was still wet? (which I have done)

      personally, I like the clear satin finish...

        Trout, it is a very high gloss lacquer. It seems like around here the more shine the better they sale. Steve

          Nice work, Steve. What do you use to create your patterns?

              Hi Mike, I use the software that came with my kodak camera to flip the photo to coloring book, a paint program to clean up the unwanted parts and good old fashioned pencil and paper to add some detail that the computer just don't do for me. Thanks for the kind comments from all. Steve

                  Hi Everyone, well I delivered this portrait today and I received many positive comments on this piece. The lady was showing it off all over at work and I believe it is going to generate a few orders. It certainly gives a sense of pride when a customer shows off your work. Steve

                    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.

                    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....
