Some people were asking me what the papercuts look like before they are done,
Here are two photographs of papercuts in progress. The first is a shot of the water area of the Portland Headlight papercutting. You can see the pattern I made for the design. The patterns are lightly adhered to the back of the papercuttings and removed after I finish cutting them.
The second is an Arts&Crafts piece that I drew, photocopied, and adhered to a piece of black paper. I have finished cutting the papercut, but haven't taken the pattern off yet. I hope to post some day video of me creating a papercut so you all can see the process.
