Default Nativity IV

Nativity IV is designed from an Arnold Volker pattern featured in the Holiday 2006 issue of ScrollSaw Working & Crafts. I apoligize for the without flash pic. I not as steady with the camera in my old age. Iíve also included a pic of the light placement.

For those not familiar with my work, I try and include a fair amount of veining (for the light to show through) and pasties. You have to look close to find the pasties. They are some feature of the pattern I cut out separate. I have also decided to put my initials on my schwibbogens. See the CS in the middle of the piece at the bottom.

As always, comments (both kinds) are welcome.

Whadayathink.

Another great job Chase, thanks for sharing.

I just might see if that issue is still available.

Chase, nice work as usual I like the lighting. Is that a ten bulb 115 volt string?
Pasties? I don't see any pasties certaily none like the ones I have seen before.
What and where are they?

Rolf, because of the rain, I had to use a flash. Most of the pasties are washed out. They are stars between the cut out stars around the arch. buildings at the bottom, and angels on the sides about a 1/4 up from the bottom.

10 light strings. I almost always use the 10 lt strings on a 12 x 18 schwib. I convert them to a single wire string.

Very well done, Chase. I know from my experience that cutting out the pattern is the most easiest thing, but placing the lamps ...
