  • Painting posterboard

    Scrollers,
    I was considering a multicolor background for a portrait project I'm starting. Because of the frame I'm using, I have to think thin for the backer. I was thinking about using a piece of posterboard the color of the "main" background and painting (or somehow coloring) the areas that need to be different. Has anybody done this, and if so, how or what kind of paint/coloring did you use?

      Bruce,

      I have taken different color paper from the scrap booking section of one of our local crafts stores and used glued or double sided sticky tape to put it in different sections. The blue paper looked like it has snow on it.

        the sky is the limit

        If you have an airbrush painting a posterboard background is a snap.
        If you don't have an airbrush you can use spray cans

        Orange over a yellow card makes a nice sunset.
        White clouds over blue posterboard are also fairly easy.

        The computer can be used to print some nice backgrounds.
        My frined Duster used a print of clouds for the background of this piece.

        And this one is a picture of Chilliwack Lake

        and finally another lake

          Hi Carl

          How about submitting an article to the magazine about using an airbrush?

            I am not up to that yet Gill.
            but thanks for the vote of confidence

              Carl,
              Those backdrops are awesome. I really like the lake behind the Heron or is it an Egret?
              Great Idea.

                by handibunny
                It doesn’t matter whether the saw table tilts or the saw arm tilts. Either can be used for any project cut at an angle, and there’s a learning curve for each.

                I actually prefer the tilting table because the blade remains vertical. I find that at really steep angles, like 40 or 45 degrees,...

                This is the tapestry I found in the cedar chest. We can’t identify where the pictures are from. Two among many. I also forgot to mention dad was also in the army Fife and Drum Corps and also played with a big band when he was discharged. Have to find that info....

                If you are referring to 3D Compound cutting, the blade is 90 degrees to the table and not tilted. I use the tilting head for things like inlays and Carole's bowls. If you want a tilting arm, be sure it is rack and pinion. Look at other features that may fit your needs. As a Pegas dealer, I can help...

                I think the foot release was an option. I don’t see the pulley for it on the back of yours. Although it may have been removed. It is a very simple concept, it’s a cable attached to the back of the saw to release the arm
