  • A different concept for doing face from Jim Redhawk

    I've had Jim's way of doing an Apache head on my shelves for a while. Decided to give it a go. It is out of Alaskan Cottonwood, 5" H x 3" wide. the bark is a little wider. Finished with Watco Teak Oil. After taking the pictures will probably do a little more work on him

    Well done carving, Joe. The head grain is outstanding and appropriate. A plain carving with appropriate detail...nicely accomplished artistic balance. I like it a lot!

        Beautiful work Joe! The Watco sure made the grain stand out. Very nice!

          Well done Joe. Looks great. In all the time I have been carving I have not carved Cotten wood dark. Not sure why just never had any I guess.

              Bill, Thanks, just following Jin tutorial, to me it was an interesting experience, will go back a review it to get some of the finer points in my mind.

              Herb, Thanks

              Mike, Thanks, It is the first time I used the Watco Teak Oil, pick up on the idea from Denny

              Randy, Thanks, CW is an enjoyment to carve, you ave to keep your foot off the gas because of it so easy to carve you can lose detail.

              Merle, Thanks, You sound like my wife, OH, you were talking about carving

              Again, Thanks, for the kind comments.

              Getting ready to do a little remodeling on him now∙∙∙∙

                looks good Joe. gonna make more ?! along with my teak oil I stir in one or two teaspoons of colored stain,, golden oak.
                it looks like about a 4 to one ratio.

                    Well here is the makeover. The other carving reminded me of a Latin lady sing from back in the '50s, you know the one with the big hat with fruit all over it. What do you think, did it help?

                      Carmen Miranda ? Every time her name comes to mind and seeing the tall head. Thought was Cuban but doesn't matter. Maybe because I saw her on Ricky and Lucy show one day. And the movie on TV.

                        i would need the two pictures side by side to see any differences from the most recent one you posted.
                        what i am seeing is looking good.
