  • My Angel

    I just completed this one.
    This was carved from a piece of 4" thick bass wood.
    She is 8 3/4" tall and 5" wide
    I used a pattern I drew up after looking at a lot different reference material.
    Then I cut it out on band saw.
    I used my largest carving tools to rough out, then I used the palm tools.
    Using the biggest tool available to rough out made waste removal go faster.
    Comments and questions are appreciated.
    I did noticed the mouth was a little low on face after had it cut in. I couldn't change it because I went in deep with the cut and I would have had to take off to much wood to change it.
    for looking

              Love her! I often would like to carve angels, but female faces are so difficult. You managed to make her look feminine and pretty.

                I struggled to get the face that good. I think to carve a small female face that looks feminine is about the hardest thing that you do as a carver.
                Before I started on that face I did a practice piece that turned out better looking than this. When I went to carve the one on the angel it was going so bad that I considered cutting it off and gluing on a new one that was already carved.
                I decided first to use fine sand paper to smooth up what I had carved. That was the secret to getting it to look as good as it is. I'm not a fan of sanding but to get a feminine face it has to be done. Thank you for your comments
