    I haven't been active on this forum for awhile, but I just finished a project that I wanted to share. I found artwork online and tracked down the artist. Yannis Rubulias lives in Athens Greece and gave permission to use his artwork for the pattern. It took many hours to trace over the design and it ended up to be 350 pieces. It was certainly a challenge. Final size - 16.75 x 24.75.

              Jo, it is an amazing piece of work. Has the artist seen what you did with his work?

                Rolf, I have been sending him progress photos. He has been liking watching it come to life. His last comment was, "Awesome!". He is an artist who draws for graphic novels, and things like Dungeons & Dragons. Buxom beauties in scanty clothes, dragons, muscular warriors, that kind of thing. Several people have requested permission to use the pattern and he has agreed, as long as they are making it for personal use and not selling it. I think I have piqued his interest in doing more designs that could be made into patterns for intarsia.

                    That is a lot of detail. What did you use for the eyes? Just great work!

                      I must confess, I used acrylic paint for the eyes. Otherwise, the rest is the natural wood color, though some is spalted.

                        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....
