  • 3 Puzzles for Christmas

    I made these puzzle maps for my grandchildren for Christmas. I got the pattern from Scroll Saw Puzzle Patterns by Pat Spielman.

    Though you can’t see the name of the states to well I used a product called Rub-onz by Grafix. You just type out what you want and print it off and you have all you need.
    I used acrylic paint, prime colors for my grandboy and pastel colors for my grand girl.

    I made this Stegosaurus puzzle model for my granddaughter for Christmas. I got the pattern from Make Your Own Model Dinosaurs by Danny A. Downs.
    I used a wash of white acrylic paint.
    Thanks for lookin’.

      I wondered why the baseball was getting bigger. Then it hit me!

                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....
