  • withdrawals....

    one day and I'm already going through project withdrawals....

    I haven't been to happy with my picture taking skills on the last few projects so I'm thinking about building one of those light boxes..I've had the materials here for months but never got around to making one..Plus I need a good picture of my Police project for the scrollers gallery...

    for those of you who don't know what I'm talking about, it's a box that you put your project in to take a helps with the light so you don't get the glare of the flash..

    I just have to find the instructions, there here somewhere...

      Why a light box? All you need is a sheet and an incandescent lamp. That's how I photographed the attachment. The frame does has glass, by the way, and I used the built in flash. You have to toy with the camera settings some to get the colors correct.

        I have made a number of those Harvey puzzles. They are a lot of fun. You really need to be patient and let the blade cut. Even the slightest pressure can ruin your puzzle piece fit. My go to is a Pegas #3 MGT....
