I like how it's turning out but I think it would look much better if I'd made the peacock image larger. I find I tend to lean towards smaller images a lot and then realize that larger is better. This will be something I'll have to learn as I do more projects.
This is an Art Nouveau image of a peacock on a bamboo placemat. I think I'll add some sort of embellishment around the edges just to finish it off.
|I start with the image and trace it on to the wood. K just had to have his arm in the picture.|
|The bamboo plaques are hard to draw on but this one took the image really well.|
|Here's a close up of the tracing. It can be a bit confusing when I burn so I keep the picture handy for reference.|
|This is with a partial burn. It took me a couple of hours to do this but it was fairly easy going.|
