Introduction: New Puzzle From Old

About: I am a senior laboratory technician in a analytical facility by day and by night I make and fix things. I prefer to work with wood but will give anything a go. I also enjoy gardening and an kept busy by my ...

I wanted to make some personalised puzzle for gifts. As have not yet bought a scroll saw so I decided to reuse old slightly sad looking but structurally sound puzzles and change the images.

How to do it-
Step 1 - Find an old puzzle the correct size
Step 2 - Sand off the old image, I used a bench sander for speed
Step 3 - Draw on new image, I have used a pyrography pen to burn my image into the wood
Step 4 - Colour the image will dilute acrylic paint
Step 5 - Give a coat or two of spray varnish
Step 6 - Cover the back with self adhesive fablon
Finished

Thanks for looking, nothing particularly new or clever here used a shared idea.

    What is 'self adhesive fablon' and where do you find it?

    Was that puzzle worth anything?

    I don't believe so or rather I hope not. It had no makers mark on it.

    I loved the way they turned out! What a great idea! Thanks for sharing.
