Re: Cowboy boot pattern
I am enjoying following your patterns and they are great. I use patterns too and use a projector to project images onto pattern materials to make repeatable patterns which I pin to my wood and spray paint around to define my outlines and locations.
I also use a projector to project images directly on the logs. This works especially well for relief/ flat work. The greatest advantage to useing a projector directly on your wood is that you can move the projector closer or further back to fit your image to the carving area on your log.
Don't know if you have tried this method? I find it saves a lot of work because I can take a picture or download an image from the net to use by resizing in my computer to fit my cheapo projector.
Give it a try.
Let me know if you need some pictures of my method.
I also use some patterns from Gordon Stiller wildlife plans, they are cheap and are proper woodcarving plans.
(Save your patterns in case your puter bites the dust like mine did....ugh!)
