      i had used a "sand" eraser on it, and that sure is a messy result

        Dan, while holding the Power unit in your hand, it vibrates side to side. It comes with four interchangeable heads. 1" sq., 1" Cir., 1" triangle, & 1"x1/4' . I've then all to clean up, They vibrate about 1/4" side to side.

        On a side note I've also taken electric toothbrushes, trimmed the brushes off the head and glued sandpaper to the heads, I've got two different modes. One is Oral-B, with more of a circular motion, and another, "Spinbrush", which just kind of vibrates.

        I hate to tell you they would do the job for your project, but I use mine all the time.

        I know, not much of a shove, just my experience.

            Carving looks good. I haven't tried the ez-board yet . That pattern does look interesting. Can you share where you purchased it?

              i purchased it from the wood carving show done in wisconsin a couple week ago. the mans name is Marty Leenhouts and he has free lessons and patterns at MyChipCarving.com and the EZboard site is EZcarving.com. the pattern is free. his site was a little bit broken that day so he personally emailed the pattern attachment to me. an email addy for the board is info@EZcarving.com
              I have now used the board and like it, there is no grain to it, one less thing for me while learning the chip carving.

                well here it is finally. my first chip carve. i actually did airbrush 4 different colors onto the body and head, hoping for the shading effect with lighter and darker parts, now that it is all dry, i cannot find those results, it all looks the same color to me. which might be just a plague of me being colorblind. i tried. if i went extreme to accomplish that, it'd be way ugly. but all in all i am quite pleased with the overall look. finished owl.jpg

                    Well, it may not have the color variations that you were looking for, but it not bad. A person hates to experiment on things that they want to keep. But at least you have a starting point.

                      now here is a guess i just thought up. keep in mind, first time using an airbrush. i was using bottled acrylic instead of tube, I think that is thinner . plus i then thinned it down 50/50 to go through the airbrush without stopping or spitting. . so it went on saturated actually. at one end of coloration i had Misted bright orange over dark brown. it showed up nicely as i did it. I wonder if the extra wet paint and time to dry duration. maybe the overcoat mist rekindled the base coat pigments and they blended themselves while drying. i seldom use bottled acrylic, never used mixed 50/50 with water. and first time with airbrush.. after it had dried i hand brushed on the vivid colors on the face and i noticed i needed 4 coats straight paint, to get color coverage.
                      anyone out there with airbrush experience ever notice this before?

                        I was able to contact Marty and he was kind enough to send me a copy of the pattern. Thanks for the info!
