  • Old designs finally brought to life.

    I made quite a few designs either partialy or complete when I started and was doing the fairs. Some never got completed, so I have been tackling two of the large ones I always meant to do but never had the time. They are 60cm by 45 cm on 5mm Asian Ply. One is complete and I think I posted that already, (Celtic Cross) just needs sealing, laquering and painting, and the other I made a start on this morning. The new one will take some work, as it is quite complex, but the hard part of drafting it to the wood with compass and ruler has been done for the most part.

    Hope you like.

    That looks very intricate. You would have to keep your wits about you I would imaging. Very clever stuff.

      Aye you do have to keep alert. I have already made two small mistakes, but they are fixable. When doing the repititious borders and such it's easy for the mind to start to wander, then you burn where you should not have >.< hehe, but two small ones so far is fine I can work over them. hehe, and glad you like.

          Thanks Val, and glad you like my work.

          Last year I was into expanding my repourtwar...repoortwee...erm trying new things hehe, this year I am getting back into more of my old Celtic style work after these are done, and hope to incorporate more animals and people into them, now that I have tried such subjects last year and feel more confident in those subjects. My post avatar on the left there was my first portrait that I did for my daughter. I feel more able now to tackle a portrait again when needed.

                Started to add a bit more detail, strengthen and smooth out some rough lines.
                Adding a pointilist shading now to the edge areas, which will take quite some time.

                    hehe don't do that Mo! hehe, They are just mock up's in a art program. I was playing with ideas for Jewellery, Leatherwork, beading and weaving at the time and made all sorts of designs until landing squarley in Pyro country. Lol, I doubt anyone could make those without special equipment anyhow. >.<

                      Phew there was me trying to work out how they were made. Really love the first one. Pete and I have been playing about with some wood brooches with cabuchons, pearls etc in and texturing. Want to play with the irridescent paints and metalic finishes as well.

                        They would work really well Irridescent's, some nice ones out there. Mix some pyro with that paint be great for brooches, earings, pendants etc, I reckon with or without the other decorational pieces you mentioned to. Be nice to see how you get on using such materials.

                          I do have a Peter Childs pyro pen but all I have done so far are details on acorn, mushroom and hedgehog keyrings, Snowman tree decs and branding a name. Maybe I should find some time to learn how to do a bit more with it though I'm not really interested enough to do full blown pyro more as an add on to what we do already to enhance designs.

                            Check out the keyring section in my gallery, I did those not long after I started for the quick and easy sale at fairs, cheap as chips market. Nice quick and easy designs are pretty easy to get to grips with using a Pyro tool. Only a small area needs burning, the pattern can be as simple or complex as you like within that space. Quite a few people around the net use the Pyro tools for the types of jewellery you mention wanting to have a go at.

                            There are loads of clipart and such you could practice with.

                            If you have the tool, have a play, you can buy pendant, earing and brooche blanks fairly cheaply too.

                              The pointilism shading is very time consuming, however not getting to bed till after midnight and being back up at 6.30 a.m. due to one of our dogs being sick, I had the time to finnish those parts. Some nice minor optical illusions are starting to pop now.

                              As this design was fairly well inspired by my love of Celtic art when I designed it a few years ago, I would have normally gone under and over wherever an elements lines happened to cross another. This time round I decided to be more selective and only do crossovers in a few places. This has had the effect that part of the mid-central design is now skewing out to the viewer at the lower end of that inner large circle, an effect that I thought would probably not be effective but now I think it is. Time will tell when I add a lot more detail as to wether that will hold up.

                              Hope you like the progress so far.
