  • Finwhale carving

    Hi i am Ferry from The Nederlands,38 years old.


    I just finished my fourth whale carving. The first sculpt i ever mad was a orca, second was a orca and calf, third a spermwhale and now my fourth, a finwhale. I used a carversbook for reference .
    The materiaal i used: basswood, dremel, airbrushpaint, epoxy putty , and a stone base.
    carving are about 30 cm in lenght.

    My idol was Wick Ahrens, may God bless him.

    I love to show my carving to the world.

        Know absolutely nothing about whales, just what I've seen in a picture, with that said, It would appear that you did an outstanding job on this whale

            If I took the time to fix all my mistakes, I wouldn,t have time to make new ones.

                  Nice work, you have captured the essence of the great whale beautifully. Well done. I have seen many whales at sea in my travels, and enjoy it when someone can capture the images in wood.

                      Ferry, just in case you come back to check somewhat old messages, I found your posting in researching whale carving. I live in Europe as well. I would be interested to know your source for basswood and what carving tools you used besides the dremel that you mention, as I am new to carving (but not to woodworking). Finally, when you say you used a carversbook for reference, are you referring to The Carver's Book of Aquatic Animals by Howard Suzuki? Thanks.

                            One of the best -detailed project that I have seen in this community. Your final output is so beautiful.
