Wood Carvings by Mark Sheridan

Jersey and Gloves

The painting of the jersey and gloves is underway.  I’ve carved all of the lettering and numbers that you see so that they stand out a bit from the rest of the jersey.  You might also be able to see from this photo that I made some straps for the helmet out of roof flashing ( thin gauge sheet metal ) and painted them black.

Everything is in primary colours at the moment but I’ll be adding highlights and a variety of smudges to give the whole carving greater character.

I thought that a name like “Bruzer” would get the point across…

    Looking awesome! Lynne is correct about him coming to life!

  3. Thanks. I should be finished up with the painting very shortly. The weather has been just too nice for any serious time spent on the carving…but I don’t mind being slowed down for nice weather. Hope you are both enjoying your summers as well. Mark.
