Tree cut out

Post by Dan_LCT » Mon 06 Jul, 2015 4:37 pm

Hello all.

Just finished this little beauty, and really pleased with how it turned out. Doing things like this was the real reason we wanted a Valiani. Put it up in Kent last weekend.

Is that cut from mountboard or something else? How long did it take to draw/trace or is it a stock cut out available on the Valiani?

Its cut out from Arqadia mount board and it is our own SVG file that we sorted out within Illustrator. Punched it into V studio and the valiani cut it out in 15 mins :D

Interesting concept. It that a mount with no artwork or is that the artwork itself? If so should it not have another mount around it to keep the glass off it? :? :roll: 8) :P

The whole frame is lined so nothing is touching the glass what so ever...This pic may help.

I know what you mean! To be fair, sticking down the all in the inserts was the most time consuming part.
