  • A tricky puzzle

    Just been making a puzzle for my sister - it's kind of "revenge" for a puzzle she bought for me a couple of years ago ...

    Pics aren't too great but I'm sure you get the idea - and with no picture to follow and no edges it should keep her busy for a little while ..

    The paper is a piece of scrapbooking paper, which interestingly cuts much nicer glued onto birch ply than photographic quality paper does .. the heavy photo paper seems to leave very faint "scuff" marks on the edge pieces - for want of a better expression - maybe it would be better to use the thinner photoquality printer paper that's around?

          I had a brain fart on something that would really drive her nuts-- ( showing my brain does have its moments) what aboout a puzzle all one color? Maybe of reeses peanut butter cups or hersey bars or kisses?
          Just the color matching would drive her bonkers..

            Great work on free style cutting. Looks like you have been taking some tips from Carter.

              I'm still aspiring to Carter's skills, Will ..

              I thought trying to cut colour boundaries on this one was taking it a bit far ...

                Sharon you have an evil mind - and Marsha says I have a wicked streak ..lol

                It was M and Ms cos my sis is a Smartie lover - and M and Ms are the closest that I could find on scrapbooking paper..

                The shop I bought the paper in had some other papers that would make "challenging" puzzles - there was one with just blades of grass - and one with just woodgrain ....

                  Used a 788 for many years. It now resides with a crafty family friend.

                  I'm 74, retired from the commercial dimensional advertising world. (carved and routed signs).
                  I've always used the Roto-Zip, band saw, or other tools to make my projects. (wishing many times I had a good scroll saw). Well, I finally found an old DW-788 that the original owner said "it finally...

                  by Linda In Phoenix
                  I use acrylic paint mixed with water to stain when I want vibrant colors. There was an article in one of the issues awhile back where a product called "Unicorn Spit" was suggested for the colors---and many people swear by it....
