    Another masterpiece!
    There is a whole dynamic energy that flows in this piece.
    You did a great job with the areosol. It is a classic case of less is more.

    You certainly have your own style of segmentation, it is nice to see.

            Oops. I was responding to page 1 of this thread. I hadn't noticed the little two.
            Nice work Gill. You've really got an edge there.

              Good job Gill, in addition to wood working I also draw & paint. This may not have been the look that you were looking for but I can tell you the finished results is good. It gives a 3D look of a sphear, color is perfect.

                    Gill, in your segmentation do you raise and lower different pieces, or are they all assembled flat after coloring them? Dale

                      You have lovingly adapted your dancing figures style to the skating world, congrats.

                      And the router tips you have given are helpful to many I am sure.

                      Just curious: what's wrong with the airbrush?

                        You guys are very kind - thanks for being so nice about the project .

                        Dale - I don't raise any of my pieces at all. They're just one flat board, segmented and with the edges knocked off. Perhaps I ought to try shimming some segments and shaping them; if I was working with stained wood as opposed to painted MDF I might be more inclined to do so.

                        Marcel - I thinned down the acrylic paint but it wouldn't come out of the brush.

                        There is no opinion, however absurd, which men will not readily embrace as soon as they can be brought to the conviction that it is readily adopted.

                          Tip o' the day


                          That a good tip. I'll need to use my router more often. The segmentation looks a bit like Torval and Dean, don't you think? Any way well done.

                            Gill, When I use my airbrush I use paint that is made specificaly for it. If you you use a fine airbrush some of the cheaper pigments are too lumpy. Did you try filtering the paint after thinning? I assume the air brush will spray plain water, if not check for leaks the siphon feed guns are sensitive to leaks at the joints where you attach the jar. Also make sure your jar is vented. If it is a gravity feed with an open cup check for clogs. I put my finger over the tip of the gun and press the trigger air should bubble back through the paint cup ,jar.

                            Good luck

                              Sorry to hear that Scott. Bruce had it but I never did. And I try to isolate from Bruce whenever I can. ūü§™ We were even around our son and grandson right before they were diagnosed and nothing for us. I guess I overdid the shopping Carole.

                              New here and looking for some help and guidance on scroll work and saws.
                              I have a Hegner M25S and have recently made some upgrades and would like to improve the blade clamping. So looking for ideas and help.

                              Whatever therapy works for you - is a good therapy. Glad your touch/retail therapy was beneficial for you Betty.

                              Scott, I am so sorry to ear that you and your wife have both had to fight through Covid. I hope this means that you are both on your way to healing, if a bit slowly....
