  • Bark Girl Face

    This Girl face is from cottonwood bark. She is 4" wide and 8" tall (with hair) on a piece that's 5" wide, 12" long and 3" thick. It's from the article in the last WCI.
    I ran into some bad wood about an inch down, you can see it in the neck. I fixed it as best I could.

      Lots of fine detail for CW, maybe if you're looking at the wood you would notice the bad wood, but to my eye the pictures are fine

        It all looks good to me Joe, I haven't tried that one yet. Nice job.
        If I took the time to fix all my mistakes, I wouldn,t have time to make new ones.

          Thanks Merle, Joe & Tom. That bark can be frustrating sometimes. I had nice eye mounds and as soon as I carved into them they shattered.

              That's sure a nice face, Joe. And ya just gotta love cottonwood bark. You get used to making adjustments.

                  Looks good to me. Anyone that can carve people and make them look good has got my respect. Got to be one of the hardest things to do.

                    Thank you, Glenn. With a little practice, anyone can carve people. From what I've seen of your work it would be a cinch for you.
