Acrylic Angel Scroll Saw Pattern.

http://www.stevedgood.com/estore/estore.html
This angel was cut from an .093 in. acrylic sheet. These sheets are sold at most big box hardware stores such as Home Depot. I like the Optix brand the best. 

The sheets are transparent when purchased. The piece was painted white on the back. The front is left clear and the paint shows through. This give the piece a gloss effect that you can't see in this picture.

I like to use a skip tooth blade for cutting acrylic. You don't want to use a reverse tooth blade for this acrylic. The reverse teeth tend to grab the thin plastic making it easy to break a piece while cutting.

You want to purchase the correct spray paint for plastic. I use the Rust-oleum Painters Touch 2X. It sticks to acrylic well. I do use a fine sand paper you rough up the side that will get the paint. It gives the paint some tooth to stick to.
The pattern book has complete instruction with pictures for cutting and painting acrylic.

There are many patterns in my catalog that you could use acrylic with.

Artistry in Wood Show:

I will be attending the Artistry in Wood Show this October 14th and 15th 2017. The show will be held in Wilmington Ohio at the Roberts Centre. The show is Hosted by the Dayton Carvers. This is the largest wood carving show in the United States. Hopefully we can give the woodcarvers inspiration to visit the unique opportunities of the scroll saw.  

I will be hosted by Seyco.com. Seyco will be there  with their new Seyco ST-21 scroll saw. I believe that Judy Gale Roberts will also be attending with her incredible intarsia products. 

If you want to see some of the best woodcarver in the world, plus Judy Gale Roberts and Seyco, set your calendar. 

If you will be within traveling distance I would love to see you there. Stop by the booth and say hi.
