I started live streaming from my workshop on Twitch in their creative channel. Twitch is a video game live streaming service where like-minded folks gather to chat and watch each other play games. Not too long ago, they opened up a creative channel where Twitch members can show the stuff they make. They do all kinds of things from pixel art, leather working, sculpting, digital painting and pretty much anything else you can think of.
I decided to throw my hat into the ring and stream some of my shop time. My first project was a scroll saw portrait of Deadpool. My wife and I saw the Deadpool movie a few weeks prior and loved it. So I thought this would be a fun project for my first stream.
The project went well. I cut the project over 3 sessions (Sundays at 1pm, PST). I stack cut 3 pieces of 1/8” Baltic Birch plywood. Normally, I don’t add color to my projects, but this one was screaming for it. So the black areas, I used ebony stain. The red parts I used a Sienna Red stain. It took a few tries as it’s difficult to control the stain. I used a wood burner to define areas and found that it helped contain the stain in only the areas I wanted.
It was a lot of fun and plenty of folks stopped by to check it out! Now, on to the next project. So be sure to join me each Sunday at 1pm, PST.
