  • Cypress Santa lineup

    These are Santas done over a couple of years. The picture of the 4 together were one for each of our daughters.

        Hi Randy
        I love cypress Santa's, they are so different every one you carve, just wish I had easier access to them.
        Very nicely carved and super job of painting.

          Beautiful work Randy. I especially like that "double" knee version.

            And please tell us how you painted and finished them. What kind of paint, what top coat to finish. They are beautiful!

                The on in the upper left was the first cypress knee I did, it was in a Carole Jean Boyd class.the pained was a thinned oil and the natural top is finished with motor oil. On the 4 together I used oil paints.and after they dried i used a satin polyurethane. The others I used acrylic craft paints and the satin poly. Carole jeans Boyd's book "Carving Cypress knees" is a great how to book very detailed and go's in depth on painting them. I use the what I learn from it on painting most all of the projects I do use paint. .
