Back to Mervin
Well, it’s back to my little window cleaner. I can’t let that sound like I’m going to be completely dedicated to this little guy in the next while because it’s fall now and that means lots of clean-up around the house when you live in Ontario. But it’s all fun.
I’ve taken the roughed-in version of the carving that I did with the Foredom tool and Typhoon bit and trimmed everything down a bit with knives and gouges. Not a lot to tell you on this other than the fact that I used some simple callipers to take measurements from the clay sculpture that I did and transferred those dimensions to the carving. I’m not all that particular when I do this…I’m just using the clay as a general model for what the carving might look like. If it’s out a bit, I’m not going to lose sleep over it.
Now that I have it to this point, I’ll do a bit of work on the head before returning with more dimensioning and detail.
that picture of your carving rolled up and I could not stop the smiles, can’t wait to see more
Thanks John. Once I get the head and arms on, it will start looking like something!
Oh boy,Looks like another good one…
Thanks Dennis…I’ll try to make it a good one. I’m not crazy about the quality of the basswood at this point, but I’ll work around it.
