    DURING

    DURING

    Share step-by-step instructions for how you completed the project:

  • 1. Cut pine to size. We had some pine left over from other projects and managed to find two pieces that could be joined to create the screen
  • 2. Transfer design sourced from Islamic design book to the pine. High School classes in draughting assisted with this.
  • 3. Cut design out using jigsaw.
  • 4. Agonise over colour and type of paint to use. Porters Interno with its powdery bloom is not usually suitable for wood, but as the screen is not going to be touched it was OK in this case.
