About Auricles of Leslie

Peter Leigh from Auricles of Leslie image

I have been involved in making up pictures from either birch plywood or pine wood. The birch ply pictures are cut out using a scroll saw, then backed with a piece of blackened ply to give the finished effect. 
The pictures made from pine wood are cut out like a jigsaw then sanded to round off the edges. They are then stained different colours and the parts are glued back together either raising or lowering the piece to give a 3D effect. When everything is dry, the item is then mounted on a wood background and given several coats of satin varnish.
Like a beautiful oil painting, a scroll sawn segmentation portrait in wood looks even more realistic when viewed at some distance.
Up close details may not make much sense, like the brushwork on the canvas of fine art painting may look visually disconnected.
However, when you step back a bit, all the colours, tones, textures and shadows emerge as a wonderful, coherent image. By and large the more pieces and the greater detail involved, the closer to photographic realism the whole becomes.
Please contact me if you have any queries - I also offer classes in scroll art.
