    Try using colored tape to cover cuts from the back. With paper you have to secure it somehow. With tape it secures itself. I tried to color a piece and didn't like it. I used tape and filled in the blanks on a John Deere tractor. It ended up looking to "busy" and was better in its natural state to me. But that was the only one I ever tried. Something different might have better results though.

    Thanks Kevin. I guess I could try one if I don't like it I can sand and refinish.

    Bruce I thought about that too. I went and bought a pack of different color construction paper so I could lay the project down on them to see what color best fits. Also I can cut and mix the construction paper to see how using different colors would effect it like the red white and blue on a flag versus the black. I figured it was cheaper this way than to buy the backing and decide I didn't like it.Then once I find what I like I can buy the stuff

    Another option may be to vary the color of the backer you use instead of a solid color. You could customize the colors to sync with the picture.

    I haven't personally done this but I have seen them done this way. If done well, they can look terrific. Not done well, let's just say they don't look so good.

    I have just started scrolling. But was wondering has any body played with staining portraits. Such as using clear coat on a persons body, different color stains for clothing, and maybe another color stain for everything else????

    Not quite. The idiots in Maryland are keeping the kids in school until June 21. A lot of schools don’t have a/c so they will send them home early. The blue angels are here every year for graduation. In September there is something at the inner harbor and the Blue Angels, Thunderbirds and another group...
