  • Seated Monk

    My son sent me a picture of this monk that he saw in a museum. I carved him a little smaller than the original (about 4 1/2 inches). I think it's a great example of the flat-plane style.

      Very nice. I think I know that monk. They serve fish and chips at his abbey. Not sure if he is the fish friar or the chip monk.

                  I really like this. Do you mind my asking what color (or colors) paint you used to get the skin tone?

                      Thanks Dashriprap, thanks papasar, he must be "chip monk" because of the wood chips.

                        Thanks Joe. This one is easier than some because the sides are already flat.
                        Thanks Arthur, thanks Merle, thanks Herb for your comments.
                        BobK, you should try flat plane sometime.
                        Rontana, I use Pete LeClair's skin tone method. You can find it on his web site.
                        Tinwood, the key to flat plane is keep it simple.

                            Joe, try this. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cr0xzuriJi8

                            I should add that I don't mix a whole can of stain. I use a couple of teaspoons of stain and just get a little raw sienna oil paint on the end of my brush and mix it in.
