All draftboard (except the acrylic over the pictures). Each layer is fit together with dovetail connections behind the layer in front of it. The pictures are magnetized to the piece on the back so we can change the pictures.
You did an amazing job on this unique piece!
Looks great, nice work! The cherry blossoms came out beautifully. I’m guessing the deer pic is either Nara or Miyajima Island?
Welcome. This is an amazing first post. Well thought out and executed.
Nara. Good eye!
Nice! We were there this last fall. Again, great work!
What a striking way to display your pics! That looks really good…
So beautifully done!!! What a joy to have this to look at every day.
Wonderful job. Hope you enjoyed Japan, is one of my favorite places to visit.
This is a great idea.
That is amazing!!!
The colors are really good, did you paint it? The color variations in the flowers is super cool, like before I take the masking off the draftboard and it’s super pretty, then I get super disappointed when I peel off the masking because it’s plain.
The cherry blossoms were just engraved. I did take the masking off before engraving, which allows the burn marks to add to the coloration. The country pieces were stained with a grey stain. I spray painted the frames and the blue title background.
It’s super impressive! I love Japan, we were road tripping through Nara, Tokyo, and Kyoto last year and from Miyazaki to osaka and back a couple years ago. I had a job offer and we were supposed to move to Japan in September, but because of the virus and uncertainty here until September, I had to turn it down. We can’t even visit this year since they aren’t allowing visitors right now and we don’t have enough vacation days for the two weeks of quarantine.
Great job though, so nice!
A true work of art. Fantastic!
WOW! This is a beautiful piece of wall art. Are all pieces assembled together or are they hung seperatly?
I always like the Asian looking projects.
I love this design! Great idea!
Beautiful! Looks like the trip was fabulous as well
What a wonderful concept and implementation! The whole project, the proportions, colors and construction…is fantastic!
