this is a harmonica frame or how i would call it. don't know the name of these.(feel free to add).
made to fit 2 of my photos wich are visibel at 2 different angles.
Step 1: Select 2 Pictures,photos of Your Stock.
so, choose 2 pictures you like. beware about contrasts and what's on it, since not every pic will look equally great in a blocked frame like this.
also the video will help you through the process easier.
Step 2: Start the Woodwork
so, here i use old palletwood wich got trough the thicknesser ones.
i cut different square strokes from it. they need to be square so both pictures have the same fitting.
next cut all your strokes to the same lenght. be exact since you are going to glue them later.
Step 3: First Picture
so, put the amount of blocks you need for your picture firmly next to eachother and put glue on the complete top.
next put the photo on it and let it dry.
ones dry, put the pictureside to the bottom and use a sharp cutter to cut between allwoodpieces. if you do it carefully you should have a part of the picture on each block. make shure you don't mix them when you put on the seond picture :P.
Step 4: Second Picture
what can i say?
if your first picture is now on top, place all your block 90° on its side. that way you will have a new place to put your second picture. do the same as with the first, but be extra carefull when cutting, so you don't kill/cut the first picture.
Step 5: Make the Frame
so, now cut a frame for your blocks. measurements are not given since all pictures can have a different size.
use woodglue to put all blocks with the pictureparts nice on the bottomframe all block should be put on it with a 45° allignment.(i did it freehand with eyesight, but you can use hardcore measuring techniques :D).
let the first part dry, then put the rest of the frame together with woodglue.(ee pics)
Step 6: Finishing
before finishing i did ant optional step. i used a GraFF cutter woodwork disc on my anglegrinder to cut some shape into the frame. that way you can create nice effects and arts.
for finishing i used my tipical homemade iron III acetate (vinegar+ rust) to get a nice worn warm tint.
the last pictures were taken when finished. so this is the effect you get.
be sure to watch the movie to see the process ;-)
thank you, come again.
