haven’t been around for awhile as I haven’t been in the workshop playing due to health problems.
But I managed to finish a couple of these off that had been sitting around for a while .
So I thought you might like to see them (well one anyway)
I used the plywood backing from an old pine cupboard to cut the leaf itself. I stack cut 3 of them. Then made a frame from pallet timber. i chose to leave it a little rustic looking and just waxed the frame and oiled the leaf. Inside the frame I cut out the sihoutte of the leaf shape using recycled mdf and placed it inside to give a dimensional feel that the scrolled one would reflect onto. This one is painted silver the others were painted with a metallic light apple green and a metalic lilac. But I kept the silver and sold the others (hopefully!)
I wanted to make wooden butterflies but lost interest along the way, so these ones from a cheap shop had to do.
