And now to put an end to this month's technique..
I know this has been a bit boring and a lot of the blame is that I've been pretty unwell, the weather is not cooperating with my need to have light and freezing me out of the wood shop. So sorry and I can guarantee I won't bore you again. My month next year will have us all up and active!!
I am still encased in ice and the temp was 3 this morning at 10. Part of the problem with my project was that the the color I painted the stretcher was off and the stretcher was a bit too big. Let's have a look.
I knew I had to use some roving to cover the "seam' which seemed easy at the time and I do have to admit, if I was loving this I might have tried harder. I chose these two colors which actually matched well. I had to take these pictures in direct light but trust me they both looked good.
From a distance this doesn't look too bad. The color of the frame looks good in this pic but in reality it too dark plus I now want a 1/4" reveal and not an inch. I will use mat gel medium to attach it to the stretcher.
In this picture you can see the poor outcome with the needle felter. I cannot have UFO's. I don't know why but I have to finish everything and when I do - happy or not - will pop up the picture. Might be a while so in the meantime check our big announcement tomorrow!!!
