So you need to carve and turn the bear, carve and turn the bear to make his arms round, step by step, piece by piece. As for arthritis help, I got tons of tips on how to carve...

    Actually when they use pictures of tsunamis in photos to show people and even in the movies the waves are often in Hawaii, with extra large waves on the North shore in the wintertime. Real tsunami waves do not look like this. Tsunami waves are often dark in color in the distance or white waves that...

    A story: I am on the beach in my thirties and I ask the catamaran sailboat why they had no females working on the boats. Captain replies because women can not push the 40-foot Cat. off the beach. I said I can push her off, and I did that. Major fit,... this became my first job in the Hawaii islands....

    Wow, broken bones are bad news. Could try to learn to carve with another hand not easy but worth learning. I broke my thumb a while back and could not sit still so I decided to learn to carve with my other hand, would try something easy although. Learning to use my bad hand has come in handy. Hang...

    Sound like your paint is too thin could be the binder is thick You may want to use artist acrylic paint in tubes or let the paint dry and do layers of paint for a solid color. A lot of paint is semi-transparent and you can see under paint for an artistic reason. If you want solid black on top of another...
