  • Santa just off the paint table

    Santa Face Collectable 001.JPGSanta Face Collectable 003.JPG Here is a 7" x 7" Santa Face carving that I have just finished. I'm hoping that some Santa face collector will like it.

    Lots of great detail and the paint sets it off, curious, did you make the glasses. You had better get him some chap-stix

      Those are made of plexiglass discs. Don't get the plexiglass too thick, it's makes it hard to work with. the rims are gold colored wire that you buy at a hobby store. Cold wind and an open sleigh does a number on the lips. The nose piece is just a U bent to right angles. the ear pieces are like- wise bent at right angles. Ends are inserted in holes drilled in the plexiglass the same size as the gauge of wire.

                  Cottonwood, Your Santas are always the best I've ever seen and this one is no exception! Do you use a hole saw to cut the lenses and epoxy to glue in the wire? Perhaps you could post a close up photo of your glasses. Santa glasses are hard to come by and I think a lot of us would be interested in making our own. Thanks!

                    Well Cottonwood,; normally I'd say you just raised the bar for the rest of us, but you've put the bar so high with this one that I for one can only dream.
                    well done sir!

                        Cottonwood, like the Ford commercial says, you didn't raise the bar you ARE the bar! That is just incredible. (I second BobK's comment about the glasses tutorial.....please.)

                          I want him, .......darn but Di is dead broke. I was muttering around the house, that I need one more piece of art in my house like I need a hole in my head. So I had to suck it up. Anyway if I had the money,... he would have been gone yesterday. On note that note he is perfect.....I am sure he will sell fast, and will be cherished deeply for a good hundred years , making a great heritage item.
