    replied to Etsy or Ebay?
    Pyro, my experience has been different from those above. I was a member of etsy for nearly 10 years. Frankly, I made as many, if not more sales on fb as I did etsy. Now, etsy requires you to use etsy pay or whatever it's called. I have always used paypal with great results. Due to this change,...

    Another shameless plug for the 2017 Ornament Exchange! It really is a lot of fun to see what arrives in the mailbox around Christmas time! If you haven't participated before, give it a try. If you have, come on back! We have some folks who have done this in the past, and some newbies. If you don't...

    We have a total of Nine signed up, this includes one to WCI. So basically, each carver would carve eight, unless you wanted to do one for yourself. :-)

    Steve, Thank you for the compliments, I was in the exchange several years ago and really enjoyed it. I am carving these for the church bake sale and cannot seem to keep them around until then I had 8 carved ten days ago and a friend came along and bought 7 (paid the church of course) and I have hunters...

    replied to First two off the bench!
    As far as the eyes, I put a tutorial on here a while back about how I do them. I use a light ivory for the entire eye. I found that white is too stark. Then I usually use wedgewood blue, or cape cod blue to paint the iris. Next I paint the pupil black, and add the glint in white. Lastly I take a .005...

    First two off the bench!

    First two Santas off the bench! The Santa face is carved "on the corner", the other is a piece of basswood something I picked up at a show. Both base coated with BLO, yellow ocher and raw sienna. Acrylic paints and satin deft. Thanks for looking, and comments are always welcome!

    Ok after some thought and sincerely appreciated feedback, We'll cut off the sign ups as of 15 Oct, let's go with 1 Dec in the mail. That should give everyone a little more time for carving...including me! LOL
    Thanks folks!

    We're gaining steam folks, nine and counting! Think we should cut off the sign-ups about 15 Oct. In the mail by 15 Nov and no photos posted until Christmas. Does that sound ok to everyone? Feedback is appreciated!

    Didn't you do one for 'Wolf Lady' or something similar? She was real shy about doing more than one. I'd be glad to reach out to her, or you can if you want.
    Thanks
