  • New to forum

    Hi, I am new to the forum but not to carving. I have got very interested with caricatures lately. I just wanted to say Hi and maybe a point out to areas that would have info about this. I am reading but like anything new, kinda fumbling around.
    Thanks

      Welcome to the forum! Soggy is right...you will find lots of great help here if you are not afraid to ask. There are many caricature carvers here, including myself that are more than willing to help.
      Keep On Carvin'

        Welcome, Dale. I'm not a caricature carver. But I carve and I am a real caricature (just ask my wife). I look forward to seeing your carvings.

              Thanks all of you. I have been watching the vids of Messer, reading books by Mike Shipley and Floyd Rhadigan.
              I have been carving for some time, wild life mainly but now I want to move towards carving caricatures. I just enjoy looking at them. I paint and even airbrush. I have a bad habit, I study techniques of something like this first. Now it's time to do it.

                Caracter carving, I thought it was all very serious, no fooling around. . Welcome, as has been said several times, with good cause, this is a great site and the Book of Knowlege for all type of carving. Be sure to post pictures of your work next post.

                  I am a new to the forum and wood carving. I want to learn somethings about how to do it. My wife did it some years back. I bought her a resin stick showing the steps to do a mountain man. I would like to know what they are called and where to get them. Thank you from Western N.Y.
