That is a wonderful video on sand shading. I’ve done a fair amount of it myself but you always learn something watching someone else do it. I hadn’t seen the “charcoal cheat” before… a great solution to more than one problem.
I suspect that the kraft paper part will be lost on anyone who hasn’t been to ASFM. No one else uses that system outside of France.
Oh yes, and did mention how much I envy that beautiful thick sawn veneer from Les Fils de Georges.
Beautiful finished piece Ken and a great “how to”
Thanks for posting.

Beautiful piece, Ken. Like Paul, I hadn’t seen the “charcoal cheat” either, although I’ve used acrylic paints and stenciling techniques with marquetry to produce special effects. I also liked the “in between” technique for sand shading. That has always been problematic for me, and I’ve typically just ignored doing those areas in the past. Thanks for a nice video tutorial!

What an amazing piece of work. Great videos; the clear close ups help use see what you have to deal with. I’m just starting to learn about marquetry and hope to see more of your photos & videos. Thanks for sharing.

It is always great to watch a master at work, who not only enjoys his work, but wants to share it with othersto make sure his craft can continue. Thank you for sharing your work and your projects.
