    Sheltie- another step closer.

    Sheltie another step closer.
    I have been using a photo from the computer as a general guide. Putting the pictures side by side helps me to see basic adjustments needed to the carving. Fur is a time consuming process. I still have more to learn to get a more realistic look to the fur.

    I'm making a Christmas scene as a gift for a friend of mine. Plan on doing a tree, some presents, maybe a reindeer, and mounting the bigger pieces with dowels on a rough, wood round (I have plenty of downed and dead trees on my place; I live on a farm)

    Anyway . . . this was the first piece....

    Hello. Newbie here and have shaved off the bark from my first walking stick to be carved into something. Haven't decided yet. I am using a Swiss Army Knife at the moment short blade to clean the stick. Now into carving some patterns. Wish me luck but then one has abstract. Can't go wrong with that....
