    I like the bear, I like the color and the subtle hair, and I like the shininess. Even if you do the next one different, this one is a neat bear on its own.

      thanks Di..... i want to try a base for this bear. so far i have an idea of a split rail fence. other than a stump and a rock i do not know how else to position him.
      here is the fence idea as far as its gotten so far. he looks better zoomed in.

          Denny, Miss this great carving when the first post. Would like to blame the eyes, but I think it was probably something else, none the less, a say, a day late and a dollar short. Good job, but I don't think your fence will slow him down much

            thanks Joe. I have an 1/8" board to mount some things on, how would i proceed to paint it to make it look like grass or weeds or what ?
            i did a couple rocks and a stump.

              You Denny, I've had a thought rolling around in the back of my mind. I know, I know.

              I haven't tried it out yet, but I was thinking for stuff like whiskers, pine needles or grass, taking a super course toothed bur, like a sabertooth bur, and grind off a bunch of chips/bur dust. then color them to the color you would be needing. After they have dried, using some Elmer school glue, it drys clear and paint the area you need the effect to show up, then with slight breeze dust the glued area with the chips/cur dust. If my dream is correct the chips/bur dust will stick to the glue and you have the grassy look.

              If you try this brain f***, let me know it works out.

                what i am trying meanwhile, i found some drywall compound. i buttered the board with it and fluffed it up a bit with a toothbrush. all i have is one color green though. for now.
                who knows, it might work out.
