Adding Some Details
I used Cheryl’s suggestion from the last post and applied a bit more of a dark wash on the fur before dry brushing some yellow ochre and later some bright yellow in small areas over the fur. Once that was well dried, I applied some satin urethane wiping away the excess to prevent the carving from getting too shiny. I’m pretty pleased with the results so far.
Also notice that the little guy now has a small ruler and a pencil in his apron pouch to help him with his carving. I’ve given him some wire shoe laces and plan to go back with some brass nails and silver straight pins for the rivets on the pouch.
