Default Grandson Portrait w/ lots of help

Well, thanks to all the help I received on a photo pattern critique I finalized a pattern of my Grandson and cut it today. I had to make a few adjustments both before and during the cutting due to several 'problem' areas. All-in-all, I think it came out pretty good.

G'day Mike,
Great job, You did justice to the photo.
That's sure to make one little bloke happy along with a couple of parents.

Very nice work Mike, I'm sure he will treasure it. It looks really good, is thet 1/8 BB, I have done some cuttings in 1/4" and now I am looking for some deep frames for them.
Again, Super job.

Yup, I mostly use the 1/8" BB for portraits. I may try some oak when I next have to order plywood.

Hobby lobby sells an oak frame with a deep recess. The glass and backing is held in with those bendable tabs which you would have to remove. The frames look pretty good and run around $2.00 for an 8x10 (they're always on sale).

Do many of you put the portraits behind glass? I never do. I coat the completed article (cutting, backing and frame) with one thin coat of spray matt varnish and leave it at that. If you use 1/4 ply you get a 3d effect when you stand to the sides of the cutting and I think this effect would be lost with the addition of glass. Just my opinion.

The couple that I did, I put behind glass, although I liked them better without.

The reason: Was to protect the fine pieces from being broken by a heavy handed duster or cleaner.

I agree with you, that the piece did lose it's 3d effect and some of it's impact.

great job Mike !

Sue,
I use 1/8 BB and Maple ply plus black felt and always use glass so as to minimize dust and accidental breakage as John said
I find pretty nice deep rabbeted oak frames at wally world for about $3
