    Thanks everyone! Unfortunately I have osteoarthritis in the lower spine, so it's not going to heal, after over 10 yrs of constant pain and management, it is crushing my nerve. I haven't had feeling in my right leg below the knee in almost 3 weeks, and walking, sitting or laying is extremely painful....

  • Depends on the feather. I am trying to achieve the perfect tone with torching and brushing the wood. I will show you an example of eagle feathers that achieves almost the same color. They aren't mostly white depending on body part. Quite the opposite actually....

  • So here's the torched feathers.
    I have a local artist who wants to attempt to paint a bare one, so will eventually post hers when it is finished. I have to invest in a micro burner and a real vise.
    but they didn't turn out too bad, largest so far is 9 inches, the max my vise holds.

  • I can't do power with the arthritis pain unfortunately. And I really prefer being a hand carver.
    On a side note, after sending off the gnome mushroom bunch, I got zero from the recipient. I was gifting it, but thought at least an I received it msg would have been nice?
    I am really cutting...

  • It would have to be willow, as te poplar is way too green to work with.
    I think the biggest problem is it's all green wood. It costs way to much to ship basswood way up here.
    I want a nice natural look, while still keeping the grooves, without it being dull, or plastic looking. ...

  • Looking for ideas!

    I am planning on carving out a eagle feather, a few testers, first, not full size yet. I would like a torched finish, but not sure how to achieve it without a charcoal feather.
    Any suggestions? I don't want to burn it with my woodburner, I am wanting a more darker all-over look.
    I have...
