  • This guy reminded of Geico's gecko, maybe a standing

    This guy showed up on Pinterest the other day and it just reminded me of the gecko, but after I got him carved and painted, he looks more like s Supt on a highway flagging crew

    I order some new wood and screwed it up, I ended up with 12-3x4x1 instead of 12-3,12x1. I to shrink up even more than what I have been doing . In this particular piece, the grain ran from the left to the right at a 45° to the front of the carving, which for me anyway, made for some interesting carving.

    The background is the same stuff I've been using, painted with acrylics, antiqued with my home mixture & a coat of Feed-N-Wax.

    Let me have your C&C's

      Another keeper Joe. Well done. I In my teens I work on a HWY flaging crew, you need to have your eyes wide open. Some drivers are crazy!

          Herb, Randy, Bill, Thank you for your most considerate reply & Ed for stopping by. The eyes might get darkened a bit, funny what a picture tells you.
