WHAT IS A SCROLL SAW PORTRAIT?
A scroll saw portrait (also known as a portrait in wood, picture in wood
or scroll saw picture) is a "light and shadow" representation of a photo
that is cut into wood with a scroll saw. A scroll saw
portrait is not a charcoal sketch, wood burn,
carving, engraving, or segmentation. The "black" parts of the
portrait are cut from the wood. The wood portion itself is a single
continuous piece. Click here for a
more detailed look at the process.
HOW DO I GET ONE?
Here is how it works: The first step is to supply me with a picture(s) from
which to create a portrait. This is the one I used for the finished
portrait next to it:
School pics or professional pics are the best as they have the proper lighting,
contrast, etc. needed to render the pattern.
Note: It would be a good idea to give me an alternate photo, in case the chosen
photo is too dark etc.
After I have created the pattern I will show it to you so that you
agree that it looks good, etc, etc.
Here is the pattern I created from the above pic:
Then, if the pattern looks good I'll proceed to cut the portrait in
