So I made my first venture into trying intarsia today. Overall, I enjoyed it. I worked off of a colouring book page and chose something rather simple as it was my first attempt. I also went simple as I currently have very limited shades of wood available! I will definitely try this again and will try something a little more complex next time. I think this one is going to find a home in my daughter’s bedroom. She loves it!
The eyes were left hollow as my daughter preferred that look. The board on the back was just painted black before gluing it on to darken the eyes. The other thing that could have been added is whiskers. Perhaps on the next one!
