Okay, I’ll admit that this is not the toughest of patterns to cut, but it was done as a request by my wife to hang in her office so naturally it HAD to be done! :-)
For those of you that have never heard of the Android brand, it’s a direct competitor with Apple nowadays – actually, it’s sold more than Apple lately. My wife is a huge Android fan – I still love my Apple Ipad. Surprisingly, this leads to not even the tiniest of arguments. NOTHING like a Steelers fan marrying a Ravens fan – now THAT would be BAD! ;-)
Anyway, this little guy was cut into a VERY old piece of white cedar taken from a cosmetics box. The wood is extremely brittle so I can only use it for very simple patterns – this was perfect.
My wife picked out the craft foam because it matched the Android color perfectly – it also made it very easy to glue the eyes on.
Piece measures 6 1/2×7 inches and is around 3/16 of an inch thick.
A nice soak in lemon oil and backed, as I already mentioned, with green craft foam board. The foam board is a first for me but it may not be the last as it looks really good and is very easy to use!
