I had a few carvings hanging around for the past FOUR years. They have been in and out of my carving bag…shoved here and there. I decided that they need to be finished.
Thea, Sven, Kristian and a fish.
This week I concentrated on getting them ready to paint.
It took part of the afternoon yesterday to paint them whilst watching a few episodes of Once Upon A Time.
I will take them to our carving get together this week to show them off and then find a spot for them…someplace.
I took a class on how to carve the tallest guy…his name was supposed to be Walter but Far Guy and I decided that he looked more like a Sven.
2012 beginning to take shape.
I bought a book on how to carve Thea and Kristian.
The fish was a practice piece a long time ago…learning knife skills…it will probably become a Christmas Ornament.
Presently I am working on a Santa that I started about 8 years ago. I am not sure it will be anything…but getting out old projects shows me just how far my carving skills have progressed over the years.
