Most of the 2021 Christmas Ornaments have been delivered.
Far Guy did all the carving this year. ( My thumb was just not up to wood carving) I did some touch up work and sanded them all in preparation for painting.
Meet the 2021 Gnomes!
Welcome to the dining room workshop. The peanut butter jar stand should be patented, it works so well! I can work on 12 carvings at once.
The carvings this year are various sizes, shapes and colors. There is ONLY one orange Gnome and that goes to special friends in Wyoming.
Some have beards and some have smiles. Each one is unique and one of a kind. I used acrylic paint, sanded some paint off and did a brown wash and then added a sparkly glaze to the Gnome hats.
We are very pleased with them and hope that everyone on our list enjoys them. 110 carvings were made. It is truly a labor of love.
