Thick Veneer from France...and other places #1: The First Half has Arrived

11-07-2013 01:45 AM by shipwright | 25 comments »

I have been patiently waiting since I arrived home for the arrival of my purchases. They were shipped in two packages and the second somehow managed to get itself three days behind the first. Every day I check the Colissimo website to track the packages and yesterday the word was (in French of course) that the first pack...

Watercolor Dye Technique #5: Toscana, cutting and assembly

08-26-2013 12:48 AM by shipwright | 9 comments »

As this blog is supposed to be about hand dyeing and not marquetry, I’ll try to cover the cutting and assembly as quickly as I can. The method here is like Boulle style except that there is ultimately only one layer. I say ultimately because for the initial few cuts there were overlapped pieces. Due to the size of the piece it was necessary to use five pieces of maple veneer to accommodate it and in the initial cuts these were overlapped to avoid unnecessary joints in the picture. The d...

Treasure Box - Series #2 - Post #4: Hot Sand Shading of the 2 inside panels

08-01-2013 05:56 PM by Patricelejeune | 11 comments »

It is time to do shading on those 2 first panels. The first thing I do is put the sand to heat. We have a cast iron pan on a 1500W hot plate containing about 2 inches of very fine sand. Second thing I do the shading map. When I do it home at night, while watching TV I do get a little more artistic like for the Treasure box series #1 Here I did it at work and was more practical The main action in shading is diping Depending on the species of the wood and t...
