    You should paint it with folk art acrylic paint. Be careful you don't get the paint too thick on the inside cuts or it might not go back together properly. I've sold a couple for $ 35.00

    Post a pic after you get it painted, I'd love to see it finished.

      I painted mine with acrylics. I sold 3 so far for $50.00 each. You did a nice job cutting.

            It's in SSW&C issue 12, check over on the left 'Order back issues' it might still be available.

                Fifty Bucks!!!!!
                Cripes, I've been giving them away!!!!!!!!
                I've made the 8ish" ones and doubled the size and made (you guessed it) 16"ers.
                Perhaps I better get some nice wood and make some more and SELL em!!!
                Cripes, fifty bucks...... ohhh my. I'm such a crummy business man.

                          Very nice Lance. Painting can be a pain but sometimes well worth the effort.

                            I've cut probably 30 of those birds and I still am not tired of it. There is also a standing parrot from an old WOOD magazine from back in the 90's. I cut that one too. I LOVE those birds. I use the Walmart (also Hobby Lobby) paint that costs about 70 cents a bottle. Then put a clear lacquer on it. I sold those for 20 to 30 bucks.

                            You did a great job on a FUN project.

                              Beautiful puzzle. I might have to pencil that in on the top of my todo list.

                              It's all fun

                                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....

                                I shrink wrap all my puzzles. It is the best method I have found. I do not use a cardboard backer as some do. I use shrink wrap bags that I get from Amazon or Ebay. 8" x 12" will fit 95% of the puzzles I make.

                                To use the bags you will need a sealer. I have one very similar...
