Inspired by Mark’s blog on his Sandzen inpired wood carving … thought might try one myself.

The idea for Haunted Forest TWO. Photo I digitally edited on my laptop. Layered a couple photos, grayscaled , rescaled, stretched, deformed, negative and pixelated ….

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

This is a challenge to myself. I have never made a carving this big, nor will I use the exact same methods that I have used in-the-past.

Hope to learn a few new tools and teach myself a few new tricks via poster printing, router carving, paper clay, moldmaking, firing, finishing, glazing, sketchup, framing, airbrush painting, metal coating and patina … and maybe a few more. This will be a process. Will take a while, maybe a few months. Think it will be fun.

Thanks Wayne

Been a few years ,,,, 4 or 5 since I have made a new carving for a tile, made molds etc.

45×15 inches is my target carving size.

Will need to resaw a few 8/4 mahogany boards and edge glue them. Will get started this weekeend.

Thinking outloud …. 36×12 may be a more realistic size for the stoneware.

My end product will be framed & crated and must fit into the parameters for usps dimensions. .....

Worked on the drawing/photo last night in my motel room in Detroit. Also downloaded a poster printing program. Estimate I have 3 hours running total so far. Never really kept track of how long my projects actually take, so figure it may be fun to keep track of it here.
