the thickness allows a deeper impression and also creates an edge to the planking
matte board on the right, card on the left
if you draw larger sections it goes much faster
notice my masterful wood grain effect
more wood grain, those art classes in college are really paying off big-time
I stuck the posts into a block of blue foam to make painting easier
after I finished painting it occurred to me that cutting AFTER painting would also speed things along
more creative wood effects
but this time I painted the piece before I cut it up!
it also occurred to me that pre-fabbing the sections would make things a bit faster as well
That is all for now, this looks like it will work out to my liking. The matte-board gives depth to the planking and is easier to work with. I will have pictures of the sections in place pretty soon.
