Other images in A girl named April Showers

I bet if 50 people was to make this picture into wood no two would come close to resembling each other.. A few things I changed before printing out a pattern to use on a piece of maple wood.

  The first one I made was softer colors and even though it has about the same number of coats of lacquer it is a flat finish, one more step down from satin and this will cover or hide the flawes. Meaning the builder can get by with poor workmanship. 

  The picture on the right all the pieces were rubbed out with 0000 steel creating a satin finish except the girl and since she was the center of attention I left her with a gloss out look, kinda, since she is a Texan she must be prettier than all the other states girls??? So probably no argument there!!!

 The colors in the border. Some are full strength and others are thinned down and when applied to maple wood the blues turn into light greens on maple. I used very few different colors to start with but mixing and thinning gave me the colors I needed.

Nice Work!  I like the one on the left the most but both are great.

 

I see you used Stained Glass patterns, most people over look the fact that you don't have to use glass just because that's what the pattern was made for.

Beautiful pieces,both of them. You have the hang of it,Patch, would never have guessed it is a stained glass pattern.

 

There is a lot of hand work ,and fussing around in those ,you are a patient man.
