It appears that this wood is actually a thin 3-layer plywood of some sort…it comes from a clementine box. I wonder if is pine, or something else.
Being plywood might explain why the wood is being easily removed to a consistent depth.
The sharpened screwdriver is perfectly sized to cut the edges, but I might have to make a smaller chisel to remove the material inside the grey rhombuses.
At this point, I do not know if this wood will hold fine details…
@ColinTheMathmo i ended up getting the background off with the small screwdriver-chisel since I was too lazy to go and find a bigger one.
Now I need to cut all those little dividing lines…somehow
I might have to go find/make a little mallet or hammer to keep my palm from getting too sore.
