Woodcarving: Santa Complete

Well here he is all painted and ready to be put away until next Christmas.

Santa completed

Back of santa

I painted him and then thought he looked too new, so I put some more thinned paint on him and scrubbed it off and then sanded it a bit.

I did and redid his eyes.  Far Guy said at one time “They look wonky!”  I worked on them some more! Finally I figured hey I can live with them.

The next woodcarving project;  I have something new to work on and my Daisies are the next ongoing woodcarving project.

  20. Hello! I slipped in from Linda and Terrys blog. I envy this creativity that some people have here, either it's flowers, cooking or knitting or now this: carving!! What a lovely looking Santa! And there is absolutely nothing wrong with his eyes - "wonky"? Thank you, I look forward to the daisies!! Love from Solveig in Sweden!
