puzzle 12: Yuzen, 6”x6”

piece count: 87

date cut: 23 March 08

notables: “scroll cut”

disposition: gift to Mary

I made two scroll cut puzzles for friends at work (Manon and Mary).  I had previously shared some of the wooden puzzles I’ve purchased with them, so I thought they might like puzzles of their own.

I applied a triple thick glaze to this puzzle before cutting.  The yuzen absorbed the glaze like a sponge, so I applied a second coat (per the glaze directions).  It sealed the surface and made it slightly reflective.  I like the effect and I’m going to try it again with yuzen in the future.
