Wow! That’s dedication to getting a project just right. Way more patience than I have
That’s a great detail to share, thanks! Do you have a recommendation for a good paper? All of the papers I’ve tried definitely have layers that can be easily pried apart with a razor blade, though none of my puzzles are old enough to see what happens “over time”. The paper I’m currently using is this cotton matte art paper.
Your event sounds really great. Wish I were close enough to attend.
By the way, I really like your puzzles, especially the creative piece shapes.
Since I have never had good enough results with paper, I have either hand painted my puzzles, or lately, I’m exploring having an image UV print on gessoed plywood.
The best place to ask questions on puzzle making would be in some Facebook Groups:
Envious! Looking forward to when UV printers are actually affordable.
