  • Shoveler Duick ready for Mounting and Paint from Summer Issue of WCI .

    IMG_0003.JPGIMG_0004.JPGIMG_0005.JPGIMG_0001.JPG From Summer 2019 Issue . Increased Pattern to 126 % and used Basswood and will be mounted on , you guessed it , Diamond Willow. This is a well wrote Instructions Article It surprised me of how well it turned out. Have a little more Detailing around the Eyes and then fit it to a Stick. I'm not to sure about the Spots on thr Bill but that's the way the Duck is soooo! I'll probably take a chance on making look realistic. I hope. When I started Carving I said I wasn't going to Carve Ducks. well this is about the 15 th Duck I've done . Had a Frien come by and he say the progress and now calls it his Duck. May change his mind after I paint it. I learned a lot doing this Project and Enjoyed it. Merle

    Sure a great looking duck and the wood burning is well done also. Excellent overall and one to certainly "showcase" your work. Can't wait to see the painting.

      Hi 807 , Got her mounted on a Stick today and let the Glue dry till tomorrow , then blend it to the Stick , after that comes the Painting. I'm a little concerned about the Painting , but will give it a Shot. To me it's not a Pretty Duck but different Duck. We will see. Ha,Ha. Thanks for your Encouragement . Merle

        WOW! That is nice. I think maybe just paint the eyes then finish with an oil finish. I can certainly see your friend's claim

                      Just curious Merle, what type of burner do you have, what tip do you use and at what temp? I have a Colewood & I believe the point I'm using is a RT-PS 1/8"

                            Hi Joe , I have a Colwood Burner and think it's great. The Tip i'm using is the RT- PS 1/8' also . I like the length , good for reaching into tight spots. I also used a Skew RT-K 5/32" , this I used for the Fine lines around the Eyes . The Setting that I used was from 4 to 4.5 , that gives lighter and Darker Lines. Thanks Joe for showing your always Interest. Merle
