  • chip carved owl

    I went to a woodcarving show not too far from home, I found a sample of a chip carved owl there, mainly he was selling a product called ezboard. a double whammy for me, i really wanted to try the chip carved owl . and this is my first chip carving so i gladly tried out his manufactured board , no need to consider grain direction with it. here is my work in progress . about one third done. chip carved owl.jpg

    Your owl is looking real good, Denny. Looks like that ezboard performs well. What is it made from?

      ezboard.com has several hits on google but my browser is very slow to open anything lately. i did see one mention though that ez board is made of high density urethane.
      it carves easily enough. no doubt about that

          I've fiddled around with the ezboard and Palight

          https://www.palramamericas.com/Produ...ly/projectpvc/

          After getting samples and availability I went with the Palight, basically because of the ease of securing.

          I dose work well and takes paint. It can be joint with PVC glue, & it is easy to cut, wouldn't split, splitter, or crumble.

          A little pricey 123" x 12" x3/4"= ±#40.00

          Would I use it again, Yes for the right project?

              yes, this chip carved owl is only about a third finished, the bottom half is the pattern penciled onto the "wood" to be cut yet. and yes , it is my first attempt at chip carving. I had never started one cause i wasnt "into" just a symetrical design pattern... then i saw this owl pattern and knew i needed to finally try a chip carving. earlier relief carving would have me almost practicing some elements of chip carving, in that i would be outlining and undercutting vines, branches, leaves veins, feather quills/barbs.. along with the relief carve. but that was close but not precisely chip carving where there are dozens of repeat 3 piece sliced cuts into a symetrical pattern. for that style of carving, this is my first. last night i was pleased with my early progress but i soon learned after i started getting tired, my beginners luck was diminishing, time for a long break. !

                    i do believe i finally finished the carving part of it. i will post this photo of work in progress, i havent found out yet how i will finish it, i dont have airbrush, probably will try acrylics but not sure how to "frost " light over dark. or is it supposed to be the other way around?? finished carving.jpg

                      ooh,, when i zoomed into the photo, i see tons of rough ragged cuts needing cleaning, and i did not see that with the naked eye. it is what it is, not sure how to clean those up without making more yet to be cleaned up. catch 22 in progress

                        Try to clean out with an old toothbrush. It looks like you hav sanded the piece after finishing. Looks good to be your first try in chip carving.

                          Hey Dan, I've had one of these for a long time, if it were to break, I would be ordering and another faster than a roadrunner

                              thanks Gorgon for the tip, i will try that, maybe i should use a magnifier too? tonight i bought an inexpensive cake decorating airbrush kit, just maybe i can try that thing out, it might be usefull for the brown background and into the "divots?"
