Tell Me your Secrets , illustration on wood cut out

It's actually on MDF board , masonite board but I write wood because it's sort of wood [ only better ] and so many people don't know what MDF board is
But I love it .
This is cut out on my scroll saw
It's a print on board . I painted the original with acrylics and Inktense pencils.

I put her in my shop

'Carmelina ' just wrote to tell me the meaning of MDF ..... it's in the comments
it means medium density fiberboard
THANKS Carmelina !!!!!

Wow this little girl is great! Sandy I just love these wood cutouts you are doing!

MDF, isn't that a compilation of many woods (bits) to make a strong substrate? Absolutely wood!

Oh I guess Carmelina already said it. I didn't know that!

Oh, she is definitely going to "winkle" all my secrets out, if I look into those eyes for long! This is great, and obviously, I love the title!

she looks like a juvenile Theda Bara or one of those other silent movie actresses from the 1920's with the deep hypnotic eyes!

Ha ha
I have been trying to think of another title for this girl
I looked up
the girl who knew too much
turns out it was a 1960 's movie with Adam West and Nancy Kwan
I'm changing the title to this and relisting her
[ this one just sold ]
Thanks Kim

Thank you EVERY one

I used to love painting on mdf, I've not experienced a saw yet, but you seem to be rockin' it! Very intense pose, also.

Lydia said...

What kind of scroll saw do you use? Does it have pins, or variable speed for close cuts? You do great work w/yours.

Very familiar w/mdf as all the signage companies use it, and it doesn't warp.

Your painted faces are captivating! I don't want to be a "Debby Downer", but MDF is full of nasty resins and chemicals to keep the fibers glued into smooth "wood". Please tell me you are (all) wearing a dust mask when you cut this stuff.
