Re: Dogwood Barrette

Joe,
You mentioned that it was difficult to get it right. It would be great if you could give us more details as to the steps you used to make that beautiful barrette - especially using the two different woods.

Re: Any tips on turning 3d model into a relief?

Mark,

Here are the directions for doing what you want. I developed this technique and posted it a few years back for an older version of Aspire but the concept is still valid. Let me know if you have any questions.

Thanks,
