  • Barn owl with copperhead

    I have been carving off and on for so long on this barn owl that I forget how much I have posted before so will just post it again. It is so far different than my original goal ~ that it is really on the same piece. The body is bass wood, the legs are tupelo, the foot is bass, the toes are wire covered with Apoxy and model paste, the talons are Apoxy, the snake is brass tubing covered with Apoxy and a coat of model paste, the wood base is a piece of oak from my firewood pile.

    It has been painted with watercolor and the feet and talons lightly coated with Golden soft gel (gloss). Finally, it has been sprayed with six coats of Krylon matte finish.
