  • Using Gill's dance designs

    Good morning everyone! We got about 8 inches of snow last night so it will be a great day to stay inside and saw!!

    Last week I asked Gill if she had any dance designs that I might use. Our dance club is having an all day workshop next Saturday and we want to have things there to sell. We are trying to raise monies for a small town nearby that has been hit hard by the recent ice storms.

    I wanted to scroll some note pads with dancers on them. I love to scroll paper, no sanding, no finishing!! I had a design that Carl sent me awhile back, but wanted to find a few more so I could have a variety. Well, she went to work right away!! Before long she had sent me several designs and I wanted to show them off!!

    This is a group picture. (I didn't have the salsa one done when I took this picture):

      Those look great, Cathy. Nice patterns from gill and Carl.

      What blades do you use to scroll paper - and do you cut them between ply?

        You've done those designs proud, Cathy . I hope they sell well - do let us know how you get on.

        If anyone else fancies using the patterns I produced, you don't have to copy them off the photographs here; pm me with your email address and I'll send you the originals.

              Ian, I'm so sorry that I didn't respond to your questions!! Yes I sandwich them between plywood or scrap baltic birch. I have been having the best luck using a flying ducthman #1 Polar blade. I first tried with a 2/0 but since I have been cutting 2 at a time, the 1 works better.

              Thanks for the kind words everyone!!

                  Really great job Cathy! I like that idea and the crisp patterns you used.

                  Gill and Carl - nice patterns! Really nice patterns. Wonder how they'd look "pierced" or cut with the table on a bevel?

                        I can't take credit for that design. It was some clipart that I modified for a quick candle sconce.

                        I would like to give credit to the artist but I do not know who it was.

                        As for Gill's artwork! WOW Gill I missed so much in two weeks!

                          Carl, I didn't mean to imply that was your design. I know that you wouldn't want to take credit for someone else's work. You had told me it was clipart that you modified and I should have stated that in my original post! Sorry for the confusion!!

                              My process is a bit different. Since I am using heat shrink bags when you seal the open end you trap a lot of air in them. When you start to heat the bag to shrink it you create a large bubble. I continue to heat the bag until it does pop a hole. I have been doing this for years. The shrink wrap...

                              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...
