Here is my finished product of the project I started and was stuck on and asked you all to help and tell me what was I missing and how can I finish it. I burned and sanded, burned and sanded until I felt I could not sand any more with out jeperdising the pictureI wish I could of done more.
Hope you all enjoy, and I will be starting on my next project shortly.
Another question from me is can anyone out there take a photo and make a pattern for me. My sister-in-law just past away and I would like to burn a picture of the two for my Brother. They were married for 18 yrs. and she was taken early in life with cancer. If any one could help me Please let me know. After looking over this picture I realised I had the shading all wrong. I tried to corest this and was unable to complete as I would of liked. Thank You Jim

jim , you did a good job correcting the picture. i like it.
and you can take your sister in laws photo. and use a photo program and turn it to black and white. print it out and use it for a pattern. works pretty good. and y ou can enlarge it or make it smaller. good luck and sorry for your loss

Jim … great job…. I do what Pat was suggesting. I take a photo… convert it into black and white on my printer…copier… and if you have the photo shop program… you can turn the photo into a drawing…that makes a great pattern.
Here is a sample of my buddys… These were done from photos as describes above.

Very nice pieces of work Larry. I too have a printer/copier and will try that. My Brother says he will be down in about a month and I would love it if I had this project done by the time he gets here. Thank you all for your comments, and yes,its my best piece to date
I will keep going at it and try and do more to enrich my works. I really love doing this wood burnings. In the summer, I will most likely get back at producing different pieces of works that are on hold for the winter time. I have two orders for gun racks, and another talking about an intertainment center. I dont know if I can get back into shape for all of these but I will be working at something. Again thank you all. Jim

Very nice Jim.
Taking Pat’s advice by creating the shadows really made a difference.
