the blade and the dogs were done in a two dimensional effects… by raising the picture half way up and then glue it{I use 1/2 inch wood} .... then frame it and put your favorite clear on it and your done !!!!! does anyone else do this ??? I have never seen anyone else do this….. and to think it came about by a mistake I made….. this style is one of my customers favorites… I have one lady who orders something from me often,saying she absolutely loves how the subject matter “POPS” !! I’m sorry I don’t have anymore examples to show y’all…. be safe !!!

I did it years ago on a Dr Suess book rack and some small projects, but never thought of doing it with the silhouettes. I will most definitely do it now. Those look great. Thanks for posting.

Ron,

These look really great! I have seen the raised and sunken looks before – as a matter of fact Sheila Landry uses the “sunken” look quite a bit with her candle holders.

This really makes the saw blade looks great!

The tractor has to be my favorite of yours.

Keep up the great work!

if I may suggest … you could use biscuits for the shimming process, or do as I did… plane some scrap wood to roughly half the size of your plywood or wood stock {you need at least 4 but more is good too}... be sure to double check that you are raising the correct side…. I did a pair of dogs looking to the right… but came out looking to the left..LOL !!! oh well, gave me a reason to go back and fine tune it again !! I got a kick out of hearing how much the little girl loved her “puppies” picture !! it made my day !!! and many thanks for the compliments also !!! be safe !!!!

Neat Idea and great werk. I also like the tractor being an ex-farmer.
