  • Sunrise or Alien Planet?

    So I found a piece of Poplar that had such neat colors in it from white to deep purple and decided it would be great background piece for an intarsia sunset/sunrise. I taped a piece of white poplar to it and free hand sawed the sky meeting the river and the mountains along the river. Got them sanded a bit and then turned it upside alien planet with 2 moons appeared. So which is it? Sunrise.....or alien planet?? Imagination is such a wonderful thing!
    I have not quite finished this project yet. Its not even glued together yet...just thought I'd share.

    Thanks for looking! Tammy

    My first thought was they resemble bubbles in a stream. Anyway it is a beautiful piece of art.

      I agree with the bubbles. I see bubbles like looking around a coral reef.

        Great piece of wood and you did a nice job with it.

          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....
