    Denny, what you refer to as "frosting" is actually a technique called "dry brushing". The idea is to take a lighter paint, wipe off most of it, then go over the piece with a light touch, just barely leaving some paint on the high spots. I use it a lot when painting my Santa beards. You can probably find some references on the web.

    PS Nice job on the owl!

        wow Marty , thanks for the link to the carving video. its a good one to watch ! on mine there were a couple places i veered from original and got a bit creative on my own, didnt have quite enough pattern to figure out a couple spots, now though, the video explained it though , to me.
