I finally completed the carving. I talked the customer into leaving the carving marks instead of sanding them out. I explained that by leaving the carving unsanded the cut facets would throw the light and your eyes would be drawn to it, also by sanding one wouldn’t know if it was a cast reproduction or hand carved because the surface was to be painted. At any rate pleased customers and client. The cabinet company told me that they were going to get pictures of this carving completed and in place then send them to their sales reps around the country to let them know that they now can offer hand carved pieces. I’m smiling from ear to ear! Enjoy!
