  • Eagle for the Preacher Finished

    He is 4 1/2 " x3 1/2 " x2 " , Basswood , Painted with Acrylics , finished Poly U . I screwed up and it turned out for the Better . It was finished and I Antiqued it as I always do but it came out looking Dirty , really Ugly . I decided to Dry Brush all of the White in stead of Painting it solid White Again . By Golly it worked . I think that's called reverse Dry Brushing . You don't have to be good just Lucky . It has the Gloss again but will wear off if I'm Lucky . Ha,Ha. Now goes for his first Walk then to the Barber Shop for Review and then next Sunday to the Church for final Approval . Merle IMG_0003.JPGIMG_0005.JPGIMG_0006.JPG

        Nice job on the stick Merle. The colors just mesh really well with the diamond willow finish.

          Hi Tinwood , Diamond Willow seems to go with a lot of different Carvings , when you start carving it you never know what design will show up , but always Nice. Thanks for your Comments. Merle

            Another top notch topper, Merle! Carving, painting and finish are all spot on. I have no doubt it will pass all the approval tests with flying colors.

                Superb carving and had to look up "dry painting," and learned a new technique. Never heard about it and a very useful tool to remember. Thanks.

                    Hi 807 , Dry Brushing is usually used to High Light Areas on Pieces , it's as Gradual process and makes it easy to get the Shade you want . Thanks for commenting . Merle
