  • I'm back and still loving Intarsia

    I have not really been away, but have been very busy with many many personal things over the past 6 months that has cut into my hobby. Some issues have been local and some 1000 miles away. My last intarsia project was a piece for the charity quilt last June.

    Over the past 2 months I have cut two projects. One a Cardinal and the other titled Moon Flight consisting of 3 Canadian Geese in flight (about 27" x 27"). I have noticed a lot of intarsia popping up in this forum lately. Great work everybody! I share your enthusasium for this type of scrolling. Here is a shot (forgive the reflections) of my first of 3 geese that I just finished. It is about 14" x 11". Had fun doing this fitting, shaping, shaping and woodburning of feathers etc. I hope to get the complete MoonFlight picture and Cardinal done within the next few months.

    Nice job Bob. I've only done a couple of pieces of intarsia, I just don't have the patience for it although I do plan on doing a couple of more pieces at some point.

      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....
