Wood Carvings by Mark Sheridan

Go Number 19!

It’s starting to look like a racer now.

I highlighted all of the panel lines on the car with a mixture of cherry red and asphaltum brown.  I also added a number of rivets/fasteners and highlighted them with a very thin wash of the same colour mixture.  The rivets were made with the end of a centre punch that I have that happens to have a nice round hollowed out end that leaves a great rivet impression when pressed into the wood.

I also painted the combing around the cockpit to look like cushioned leather.  The leather is painted with milk chocolate and a wash shadow of asphaltum on the lower edges.

The radiator got some vertical veins in it by making finely spaced burned lines with a wood burning tool.  Then it was painted a combination of asphaltum and carbon black before the yellow number 19 was applied.

Now it needs some dirt thrown here and there for highlights.
