    Wow if that's your first attempt what are you going to produce when you get good? That's a beautiful piece of work, Jeff - it really shows off Sue and Toni's design.

    I love that little animation too

      most impressive

      WowJeff, very very impressive... especially for a beginner.

      I knew you'd be able to pull it off, had no doubt what so ever!

      Thank you for participating in the Aries Challenge. You make our designs look great!

      Take care

        Well done, Jeff. A word that I don't think I've ever used on this forum to describe a piece of work before is awesome. It's so often used inappropriately.

        I feel that what you've done with Aries is awesome.

                    hey Jeff,

                    I thought maybe I should wait until a few more people get their's done...
                    yours is a one of a kind, and I don't think anyone else will be turning theirs into a bowl...

                      Trout - we want to see!! Don't worry about posting too soon - it will inspire some of us who have no idea what to do yet!

                        Trout, post the dang pic already. You're killing us.

                        I've got my colors picked out but I haven't been down to the shop in a few days, was kind of under the weather.

                        By the way, Jeff, that is one fantastic piece you did there. You done good.

                          I love the creative approach you take.

                          I sincerely believe you are one of the few people that actually have a talent to think outside the box and come up with something practical as well as beautiful.

                          And you show courage in attempting a double "first time" in this project, especially by advertising it before it's completed! That is showing confidence, I guess.

                          You show exceptional talent in your endeavors, thank-you for sharing it with us.

                            Trout posted his version of Aries in a separate thread... and it looks great!

                            So we have seen two done in intarsia. Ricki will be doing this challenge for us, since we have run into some time issues ourselves. LOL. Plus, we have been asked to get the patterns for the Zodiac Masks out as soon as possible... which of course means we need to work each one. Wouldn't you know it - we changed Aries some, so we even have to do that one again too.

                            Thanks to all who took up this challenge. It really is fun to see what you come up with when a number of people are doing the same project.

                            Way cool!

                            Take care

                              Great job on the segmented/intarsia plate Jeff!!! Really impressive looking. INCREDIBLE given it's your first!

                              How about a picture of the bottom to see the mirro image of the "former" Aeries pattern?

                                  Perhaps, we could hear from Fox. Maybe they could try some things and see if it makes things better. Or, they can just keep doing the things the same way.

                                  This is a case were the publisher can't win.

                                  I personally like the patterns to be printed at the artist's intended size if at all possible. Let me decide to reduce or enlarge. If I don't have the equipment to make a copy at 100%, that's my problem not the publishers. We all have our own...

                                  The original pattern was 7 1/2 x 13 1/4.. The book has no mention of resizing on all but one page. My guess the magazine and the book side of fox has no one who scrolls.. the last books have shown that. enlarged I had to use a #1 blade for many cuts. If I had just copied the pattern in its silver...

                                  I think he is talking about the size of the patterns lately and extra steps needed to copy and resize them. It took me an hour to copy the fish from the latest issue with all the folding, cutting to match, tape, repeat. If it had been letter or legal size, I could have copied and resize with less hassle....

                                  IDK? I remember that Ben sold Pegas blades, but the label on this package just says "Ben's Blades, Ultra Thin Puzzle Blade". When Denny started selling Pegas blades I asked him and he told me Pegas doesn't sell a specific "puzzle" blade. The 2/0 might be their answer....
