One down

Okay, some of you were interested in seeing what was developing in my sudden week off of work. Here is the first completed work. I was supposed to have this ready for Christmas 2009 but I'm a busy guy this year so............here's how it started.

I wanted to try something different with this intarsia piece, so after shaping and sanding the pine, I used different paints, and flocking to give it a more festive appearance. I'm not a fan of painting wood for any reason, but this one was screaming for it. Here's the finished piece.

Not as impressive as some of the pieces on this forum, but something different for me. I'll be posting more as things develop.

I definitely love the paint on this piece, and great color choices. It's bit hard to make out, but did you use the flocking first and then paint over it to give it texture, or is it just different colored flocking?

That turned out very nice. Very artistic. I also thinks it is commendable that you are getting such an early jump on your 2010 Christmas decorations.......

I used different coloured flocking. It was a real PITA. Especially for the scarf. The scarf, hat, and birds body are all flocked and everything else is painted. I'll try and take a photo that is a little more clear. It was a pretty gloomy day here yesterday.

Funny. This was a project that supposed to be done for my wife for display in the Christmas season of 2009. It didn't exactly work out that way.........................so I like your train of thought.

It's approximately 8 X 10. That's a rough measurement due to my lack of a tape measure at my computer.

I would also like to point out that as far as the design of this project, I got the "pattern" out of a magazine. I just made it my own with more elaborate shaping and painting and flocking. Although I do design my own pieces, this is not one of them. I would hate to take credit for someone else design.

I hope this picture shows the flocking a little better.
