    I know Merle it seems backward. But it layers better from bottom to top. The longer wavy hair of a golden will require some work. I will try to carve in some definition and depth to the layers before I try to work in the hair itself.

    Hi Arthur , I read a couple of Articles on carving Hair and they said to start at the Bottom of Carving and work up . They also said to work from the Back to Front . This gives you an over lapping of the Hair like Shingles on a Roof. The length of strokes depends on the length of Hair on Dog. Also don't try to carve every Hair . Start in the Middle on the back of his Neck and work from the Bottom to between his Ears and up . By the time you get to the Top you will have the Understanding of what you are doing. Bottom of his Jaw up to top of Muzzle . It is a Rewarding Process , so take your time and have Fun, it's only a Piece of Wood. Merle

    Merle, please explain "Bottom to Top and Back to Front." I'm planning a bust of my miniature Schnauzer, and that's a new one to me!

    started a topic Dog carving.

    Dog carving.

    This is just about ready to start on the fir. My goal is to give it the look of a golden retriever, requiring the appearance of longer hair than I have done in the past.
