        Thanks Sally and Mike,
        I have got to where i paint so much its hard to not paint something , plus the only wood i ever have is pine so nothing real special. one of these days i might find something other then pine to make something out of then i'll have to fight the urge to paint it LOL . I have all these ideas now for stuff in our own home, just need to find the time to do it ! I think i am making sundays " us " project day !

          Neat puzzle. How do you keep paint from going over any of the edges? What size blade are you using? You can't see the lines from the cuts in the first picture. Good job!

              I would love to learn more about your painting technique. How do you make it look so smooth and ...well...professional? What paint are you using?

                Cathie, that is so kool. My grandson would love it. I don't have the picture available right now, but, it is one of him sitting on top of a giant pumpkin, that weigh's over 1,000 lbs. My friend grows them for contests each year. If you want, I'll look the picture up & put it on here for you. I like your puzzles & I plan to make the grandkids some for Christmas. Thanks for showing us.

                    Thanks everyone

                    Cathy , number 3 fd ur blade for this one. I airbrush all my puzzles now and most of the time can avoid going over the edges on them, sometimes im lazy though lol

                    Wooddog, i keep forgetting to renew my subscription thanks for sharing those i'd love to make some for the kiddo's !

                    ubgoofy i'd love to see that pic how awesome ! I'd love to see the puzzles you make the grandkids too

                    Hammer I airbrush everything with acrylic non toxic paints ( folk art and americana brand mostly ) It took me a while to get airbrushing down , getting the right air and paint consistency is key . a good even smooth coat of primer helps a lot too. i rarely have to sand between coats now and im loving it . I hate hate hate sanding lol. I have found with airbrushing that dark blue's , and reds are sometimes tricky to paint with because they get blotchy very easy , and if you can't fix it in 2 coats your better off sanding and re primering them then to try to fix the spots. they get dark spots that are next to impossible to get to blend back in. For starting out with airbrushing , bright colors like yellow, a bright green are excellant. other light colors work great to , the darker the color the more of a pain they are at times it seems. pastels for example work great . a lot of people say 50/50 ratio of water to paint, i have found this to not be true for me, i go by the way the paint looks , to thick it pools up , to thin it spreads out with bare spots to much . i make it to the consistency of milk almost and that works.

                    have a great labor day weekend everyone

                      Pumkin Picture::

                      Cathie, this is not the picture that I was thinking of, but, it's good anyway. It was always fun to work with my friend when he was growing them. Did you ever try carving a regular sized pumpkin, so it would look just like a scroll portrait? I did that & was fun. Try it sometime.

                          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....
