Dance Muse and 4 Different aspects of a Nebulous Thought are by product of ³ism. By that I mean, I was sad to see all those nice shavings, scrapings, sawdust wasted, so I collected them by color not really knowing what I was gona do with them, just that I already used some on The Shacks.
I just decided to use them as pigment an tried to do something more like painting but with wood pigments and texture.
Dance muse is an abstract idea of a dancing gipsy I had drawn in the past and 4 different aspects of a Nebulous Thought apart from having a silly title is what the silly title means.

Interesting use of sawdust, very artistic. Myself I use sawdust as an additive to my soap when I wash my hands at work thus getting rid of that pesky grease and grim found on cars and trucks. (laughing)

Marquetry is one thing but artistic creativity and talent is completely another.
Just amazing mon ami.

Wow Patrice…you are good. Out of shavings and dust you produce these marvelous works. I’m never throwing out even the tiniest piece of veneer again!

I’ve always wanted something to do with sawdust. This is absolutely beautiful.

Saving all those scraps and making art from them are two different things. I’m sure I could easily do the first but to make something like this is a whole different story! This is definitely something I would like to try but I’m sure there is more to it than just gluing scraps together and sanding LOL!

Thank you all. The hard part is not to do or visualize what you want, but actually make it happened, try and error are here for that. The good thing with working with scarp is if it does not work out the way you want sand it down, you haven’t wasted anything.
For those who are interested in trying, I am putting together an article “tutorial” for an australian magazine on fusion and sprinkling, I will post it when ready.

Beautiful! I’d really like to see the tutorial. I already have a problem with the nubbets (little bits) I keep—I think it’ll get worse now . . .
