My first post of a photo statue was a single layer one (see my projects). This one is a double layer type. The female image (my wife) is the front layer and and the guy (that’s me) is the rear layer. The photo statue technique offers a wide range of variations.

Really nice Ed. Would you mind sharing how you made that. I’m pretty sure you used a Scroll saw for the cutting, but I am interested in how you attached the picture to the wood and what you sealed it with.

I used here a 1/4 in. plywood sheet. However, any similar material will do, like masonite, foamcore, or just plain 1/2 or 1/4 in. wood. The photo is a computer printout on photo paper. To glue the photo on the board I used ordinary white glue. Contact glue is also ok. Still better but more costly is dry mounting or heat mounting. You’ll need a machine for that. Cutting or shaping of the image was done with a scroll saw. Finally, I sprayed the shaped image with clear gloss lacquer Then attached it to the base.

Ed a great job.

I’ve seen pictures that have flowers and are about 6-7 layers.

It’s a cool impressive technique.

Nice job.
