A word from Garnet Hail
The bookworm is a project to adorn the wall of a book lover, bookstore or a librarian with a sense of humor. I wondered what this project would look like painted so I sent one to Jane Moore of Elora, Ontario. She came up with this wonderful rendition done with acrylics.
The painted version can be cut from one species such as cedar or pine and raised as indicated on the pattern. It could also be segmented so you don't have to worry about grain direction. The painted version can also be cut in fewer pieces. The leaf, stem, hat, tail, face and head can each be cut as one piece because the detail will be added later with paint.
Basecoat the plaque
Basecoat each piece as follows: Head, arms, and body—Sable Brown Apple—Tomato Red Leaf—Hauser Dark Green Overalls—Williamsburg Blue Stem—Dark Chocolate Book—Honey Brown Book pages—Slate Grey Eyes—Light Buttermilk and Black Mouth—Black and Tomato Red
Hat—Deep Midnight Blue Face, Body, and Book—Dark Chocolate Overalls and Hat—Deep Midnight Blue Pages—Slate Grey Apple—Black Plur
Apple, and Cheeks Fiery Red
Use a liner or permanent marker for words on book and then spray on finish of choice.
