  • Meet Evan

    Evan is a mischievous little elf, always looking to get in trouble somehow. He's about 4X2 inches, basswood, basecoat, with painted eyes. As always, C&Cs are welcome. Thanks for looking and Merry eve of Christmas eve to all my woodcarving friends!

    Steve, Sounds like Evan may have a tendency to take after his dad. Great job.
    If I took the time to fix all my mistakes, I wouldn,t have time to make new ones.

      Another in your style, Well done boy do the eye really pop out at you. I got the oil the other day that you use. After I get my office/studio room clean (happy wife happy life) I'm going to do some weaver that my son Jeff had sent me images of, I think it will really be the place to try it.

      Merry Christmas from Pam, Joe, and the doorbell Minnie

              Nice carving and details, Steve. Curious what you colored the basswood with? Looks great.

                          Thanks for all the kind words folks. He was named Evan because he was done on Christmas Eve.....hehehehe.
                          Bill, aka Woodburner807, as Joepaul says, it's my moonshiner secret sauce! Seriously, it's just my regular base coat of BLO, yellow ocher oil paint, and raw sienna oil paint. Proportions however looks good to you.
                          Hope you all had a great Christmas!
