  • 3 Pups

    I decided to capture my 3 pups in caricature. So I took some photos, sketched their outline on some basswood blocks, cut them out on the bandsaw & coping saw and started carving. I will add some tails later as necessary...

      Looking good Bob,!.......... be sure you remove all the " bark" off that wood before you carve it...

            Looking good so far, Bob! One nice thing about this project is that you don't have to pay the models any extra for posing...

                Thanks! They are great pups and they have lots of bark, no bite.

                  Thanks for sharing the"tale" of three "tails" with us! Looks like fun, but the hard part will be capturing just the right expressions that reflect their personalities. Every one of our dogs over the decades has had their own distinct personality, and that's tough to show.

                  Keep the pics coming as you progress!

                    Slow carving lol. Pups are ready for paint. Most have at least two pieces glued together. The curved tail required three pieces glued together so it wouldn't be too fragile. Each dog has their own personality and I tried to reflect that in the carving. Now I have to figure out the painting...

                        No doubt you have captured the personalities, Bob. Hard to select a favorite but I think the one ready to pounce is the one.
