  • Gee...since I got promoted....

    ...the Hazmat Chief ain't smiling!

    Carved in pine, Laughing Eddie is almost 4 inches tall. First time doing washed out paint. I like it. May do more in the future.

          Good job carving, by "washed out paint" dose that mean diluted (watered down) paint?

            Thanks! Yes I call it washed out paint but it amounts to a drop of acrylic paint in 10 drops of water. Others call it paint washes.

                Very nice carving! I’ve never carved pine. Is it easy to carve?

                    Thanks everyone. Pine is not bad to carve. I always tell people who ask about pine to get a piece from Home Depot or Lowes. Look for something grainy--even if it has knots. I like lots of grain and color. I'm one of those people who carves through the knot and incorporate it into my carvings--a Dala horse is a good example. Cut a square piece--5/4 would be 1 1/8"x1 1/8" maybe 4-5 inches long. Just start carving. Carve the block every which way even when it makes the wood chunk off. You'll get the feel of how it carves and the difference from a wood you normally carve--probably basswood. The best way I can describe it is it carves like basswood but on a grander scale and it smells nice. I think you'll understand once you've carved it. Pine is my go to for carving quick and simple Christmas tree ornaments and the smell puts me in the Christmas spirit.
