Ready to Carve (TM) 10" Basswood Plate with Printed 3D Illusion Pattern
This product is offered in response to several requests for a pattern that could be transferred onto a 10" Flat, Plain Edge Basswood Plate. I believe that "tracing" the pattern onto the wooden plate in the traditional way, using graphite-based transfer paper, would result in disappointment. The layout requires exact line intersections that define the starting and stopping points of each cut. Hand-drawn tracings often require some "cleanup" where the pattern moves, the pencil or stylus drifts off the pattern lines, or smudges make it difficult to discern where the lines are supposed to be. This ready to carve option is available for those who want to do the chip carving, but are unable or uninterested in drawing it onto the plate themselves.
