Puzzle - translated from English means "puzzle". Now a huge number of jigsaw puzzles are sold, consisting of hundreds and thousands of pieces, which can be collected for more than one month. What are the basic rules for assembling puzzles?
If you decide to try to assemble a puzzle for the first time, do not immediately purchase a picture consisting of several thousand pieces. The optimal solution for a beginner is a picture consisting of 500 details. Give preference to an image with large, well-traced details, do not start your experiments with puzzles from Impressionist paintings. Buy a special mat for assembling the puzzle, but if this is not possible, then prepare a large piece of plywood or cardboard. The main thing is that later it can be easily moved without scattering the picture.
Open the box and carefully unpack the plastic bag containing the puzzle pieces. Empty the pieces into a separate box (or into the packaging box of the puzzle), but so that you can freely sort through them.
Select frame fragments from a bunch of details, that is, those that have one flat outer side or two (for the corners of the frame). Fold up the frame, referring to the picture on the lid of the box.
Start collecting the picture itself, sorting out all the pieces by color (blue - to blue, white - to white), and collect the puzzle in its individual fragments (house, tree, etc.). Constantly refer to the reference picture on the lid of the box. Take your time to attach ready-made fragments to the frame until all the most significant ones have been collected. The basic principle is that the more details you can fasten to each other, guided by their color and shape, the better.
Fasten the resulting fragments together and attach them to the frame. If a few details remain unclaimed, and there are "black holes" in the picture, it will not be difficult to fill them. You can place the finished image in a frame under glass, sticking the pre-assembled puzzle on a piece of cardboard, or disassemble it again and put all the pieces in a box, so that you can return to this puzzle someday.
