  • Cutting Styles

    In preparation for a scrolling demonstration I decided to make up a piece that would show the different ways I've cut puzzles. It's 2 layers of 1/8" BB. The puzzles were cut out as tray puzzles and then glued back in so pieces wouldn't get lost as it was handled.

    Sweet looking display. Excellent examples of the puzzles.

      Great idea and a nice job of puzzle making. There is one more option that I use to make puzzle. That is cutting along the shapes in the picture.

        Are you free handing or do you have a pattern that you use? If a pattern how do you apply it to the image without damaging it?

          I use a pattern for the round puzzle and freehand the others after drawing a grid over top. My go to method is to cover the picture with clear contact paper (shelf liner) then I can draw my grid on it or glue a pattern to it and the contact paper will release from the picture without leaving a residue.

            Do you apply any coating to the picture before applying the contact paper?

              The way I do it is, glue picture of puzzle on a 3/8 inch bb, then seal picture with clear spray, then put the puzzle pattern on a 1/4 bb, tape the two boards together with the pattern board on top, just a matter of cutting then, thx RJ

                So if I understand correctly you never put the contact paper directly on the image.

                  No, I don’t use contact on the image, just the 1/8 piece of bb with the puzzle pattern on it, after I cut the 2 pieces fall apart, RJ

                    It depends on the source picture, but most of the time I spray something on top. Shellac or triple thick glaze usually regardless of whether I'm applying the contact paper or not.

                    BTW, I do cut puzzles along color lines too. Most of my Christmas card puzzles are cut that way (~60/year) as are most of my Rockwell puzzles. Only had so much room on the display piece.

                      Once whatever top coat is dry the contact paper goes directly on the image. The nice thing about it is it comes up without pulling on the picture and leaves no residue when it's pealed off.

                        I’m curious as to what type of contact paper do you use?

                          Contact brand removable adhesive (clear). It’s sold primarily as shelf liner. You can find it in the big box stores.

                            I will have to do some experimenting with the new Duck brand vinyl shelf covering, it is a bit different.

                                Scott, I was referring to her pms to Bill Wilson and Quartz. They posted her reply by pms instead of on here.
                                Would be nice Quartz. I asked got Bob to put the issue next tp patterns and he said something about real estate. He found a way to do it and didn’t lose any real estate. Guess they don’t...

                                I would be pleased if FC at least did a trial of printing A pattern on regular sized text and also providing a scale up factor. Their resistance to do anything if a real pain. It was a similar lack of action with the website that resulted in lost viewers.

                                I think Kelly did that because I wrote a letter to the editor complaining about an article in the last addition. It was the article about staying connected online and it didn't mention the FC forum....

                                The fastest I've ever seen one of those 3d deer cuts was by Rick Hutcheson. That man was super fast when we was working the shows.
