Carving Cowboy Bottlestoppers is a great carving project
for the beginner to
advanced wood carver. Many different facial expressions can be tailored
from this very versatile blank. All aspects of the carving process are
in this DVD, including cutting out additional blanks.
Carve an Old World Santa ornament combining two
styles of wood carving. The face
is carved in traditional full relief, and the
beard and areas around the hat are carved in
a pierced relief fashion. This adds
texture and interest, creating negative space also
adds dimension and lends a
nice flow to the carving. The small size of this project also
cuts down on the
investment of time and is a great way to build your confidence in
realistic facial features before committing to larger carvings. In this project
special attention is paid to the details of the carving process enabling the
viewer to readily understand
and grasp the carving techniques.
Carve along in this easy to follow, step by step procedure, which will allow you
to finish your Santa ornament
right along with Mark. Starting with the
blank, to the roughing out of the ornament, then on to the intricate
details, flowing hair, and beard. All aspects of the carving of the Santa
ornament are covered.
Also covered in full detail is finishing with a simple, but effective 4- step
process, the final touches that will
bring your Santa carving to life! Carving
from blanks is an excellent experience in expanding your creativity
There are many variations that can be applied to these carvings, which are only
limited by your
imagination. The goal of this DVD is not only take you through a
step by step carving instruction, but hopefully
techniques learned, are further
incorporated into each carvers individual styles to create pieces uniquely their
own. The techniques learned in this DVD can also be used to carve ornaments in
basswood egg turnings,
dowels, blocks, walking sticks, and bark.
"Carving Elf Ornaments",is a spinoff of, "Carving
Santa Ornaments" The carving maintains
its basic form by utilizing the same
triangular shape blank, while still hinging on the pierced,
and full relief
carving styles. Carving instruction begins with roughing out and establishing
proportion in the basswood blank. Then it's on to isolating the facial features,
the mouth, lips, chin, jaw line, eye mounds, and ears. Also
emphasized and covered in full
detail, is laying out the mound for the mouth,
the essential basic foundation necessary for
portraying correctly detailed
facial expressions in this area of the face. Applying a natural
type finish is
also demonstrated step by step, and a special product is discussed which will
reveal how to convey more realism in the eyes of your carvings. The corner stone
of this DVD is the special
attention that's paid to the details of the carving
process enabling the viewer to easily grasp the carving techniques
their very own and unique carving. Carving from blanks is an excellent
opportunity in expanding your
creativity levels. You will find that after you
have carved a few Elf ornaments, that by moving the measurements
and making some changes to the facial features, the expressions you can create
are many. Though
there are realistic overtones in these carvings, Carving Elf
Ornaments are not realistic carvings, but if you choose,
can certainty be carved
that way. Carving Elf Ornaments are just my interpretation of these mythical
beings and I
carve them to what appeals to me. After experimenting with these
carvings I am sure you'll discover your own
interpretation of Carving Elf
Legend has it woodspirits live within the trees
