Well, I couldn’t put those elk antlers down for long so I made a quick little wizard out of one of the branches of the antler.
Again, I used the Foredom tool with a few very fine carbide bits and some ruby carvers. I didn’t work from a sketch but just started with cutting a deep triangular nose and deep eye sockets and went from there. Once I made some general smooth indentations with a tear-drop shaped ruby carver for the bags under his eyes and the waves in his beard, I used a more disc shaped carver for the individual hair and beard lines.
Following that I applied a bit of dark stain and a little bit of acrylic gold colour to his hat. A nice little project for what turned out to be a cold and rainy day.
It’s just a little carving…that’s a dime sitting beside it.
Well done! That is so cool.
Thank-you, Wendy. This is something that you should give a try. Just make sure that you use a dust mask and some kind of vacuum system so that you’re not breathing the dust.
Fantastic piece,you are so talented.
