  • Finished Indian Bust (Branch)

    Hi All, I finally finished the Indian I was carving out of a Sycamore branch, he is about 4" tall and 1-1/2" in Dia. I really think he turned out good, What do yall think??

    If you didn't give the dimensions I would have thought he was a lot bigger. Great detail for such a small carving. Well done.

          That's a nice piece! Can I make a suggestion to maybe set it off better? As it's a bust, with little of the body showing I would mount it on a nice base. I would also use a dowel to raise it from the base an inch or so. Like pictures need a frame to be displayed to their fullest potential, carvings need a base to really set them off.

            Great one Gary! Good suggestion from Lynn.

            I am trying to figure out if I want to mount the Fireman on another base as there is a base that is part of the carving or cut that one off and mount it on some walnut. If I do the latter, I don't think it will be round or square.

            I like your Indian.

                Thanks for all the comments!
                Lynn I was thinking of putting him on a base, but never thought of the dowel idea, thank you for the suggestion. By the way I love your carvings, how come you don't have a book out yet?? I would love to have one!

                  Your carving is getting a lot better... could it be because of the new carving club that you recently started?

                  That Indian is as good as it gets! I couldn't suggest any improvements if I looked at it for an hour!

                  Thanks for sharing this and for the three views!

                      Gary,
                      Beautiful job!
                      Gotta ask you. Did you carve the wood green? I carved green and thought that sycamore was great. It carved like butter. Tried the same with a seasoned branch and it was really tough.

                        Dave I think I'm getting better because I carve more and am trying out different things. The club I started is mostly newer carvers and I am showing them how I do faces right now.
                        Still lots of room for improvement tho. That is only the 3rd Indian I have tried.

                        TalkingPapasar. I love to carve green Sycamore, but this piece is about 6 months old and was getting pretty hard, but I don't mind,, jsut take littler cuts.
                        Thanks again,
                        GaryMc
