  • Peregrine in progress

    I recently posted some sunrise photos on Facebook that included the piece that I am currently carving. I received comments on the sunrise and position of my carving area ~ also about the bird that I was carving.

    It is a Marlen Downing design of a peregrine perched on the side of a cliff. The basswood carving is 12" long.

    I have taken some liberties with the design. Since I do not compete in carving shows ~ mixing media is of no concern.

    I did not like the way the back toe and the third toe of the right foot were positioned. So I cut them off and made toes from Apoxy. The back toe has been attached already.

    The left foot was hidden under feathers and I decided to create a little interest her by having the front toes of the foot slightly extending beyond the feathers. I have long since decided that I will not spend the effort carving talons that come to the shape and point that I want. So I turn to Apoxy to make talons for my birds.

    A while back, I stated carving on he back of my pieces. Don't know why! I decided to add the NW Native American style drawing to the back of the carving.

                I am slowly making progress on the peregrine. The first coat of paint, with some highlighting is on the rocks. The right toe and all talons have been formed from Apoxy and are in place drying. I still have to put lichen on the rocks and form the cere and nares. before I do much painting on the bird. I have ordered escutcheon pins that I hope are small enough to insert in the nares.
