Wood Carvings by Mark Sheridan

That Toothy Grin

Here’s a bit of time put into painting the head and helmet.  The brass nails holding the chin strap support will be painted and non-brass looking before I’m finished.  The chin strap itself will be a combination of copper wire and light gauge metal ( roof flashing, likely ) and will wrap around the ears and loosely lie under the chin.  I used some old “Letraset” that was lying around to duplicate a beat-up looking CCM emblem on the helmet.  More to come…
