I've never done carving (or sculpting, for that matter), and I'm fascinated by the courage it takes. Working in 3D, you can't make mistakes.

I'm looking forward to how the prints turn out.

Yay! Cant wait to see them as prints!

CB-you bet :)
BG-actually there is plastic wood to fill gaps and mistakes, I don't like it though. A good plan is the key. I had a few slips on these, cherry wood is very hard, but incorporated them in the design.
CGP-thank you, they are coming along....
L-you have front row seats for this show.

HEY! Lisa lives in New York - she can't come. WE want the front row seats....

My gosh - that is some fine work there - and no blood. I slash myself carving doopid little rubber stamps.

That's very cool! I'd love to try some carving but I think I'd end up curving chunks out of my fingers instead. Will you show us the other steps? I've seen your pictures but I never put together in my mind you started with bits of wood to make them.

RG- It's a pretty big first row, come on in and sit right down.
ES-part of the prob is finding all my stuff since the move, it's a bit discombobulated, despite best effort.
T-I'll try. You can find some info here http://www.barenforum.org/baren_faq.html
MOC-it does, it is quite painful.....lol
