Handmade Portraits #5: Handmade Portraits: Jason Tennant

08-20-2010 09:30 PM by Etsy | 5 comments »

“The tree which moves some to tears of joy is in the eyes of others only a green thing that stands in the way. Some see Nature all ridicule and deformity… and some scarce see Nature at all. But, to the eyes of the man of imagination, Nature is imagination itself.” — William Blake, Letter to the Reverend John Trusler, August 23, 1799 Jason Tennant is grounded. He is rooted in his place with strength and dignity, not so distinct from the trees surrounding him. Before ...

Chip Carving Class - Quilt Squares #14: Lesson 8 - Applying a Finish

04-04-2011 09:49 PM by MyChipCarving | 19 comments »

Applying a finish to your completed chip carving is a “make or break” step. Do it well and your chip carving comes to life and is something wonderful to behold. Do it poorly and your carving loses the beauty and the finish detracts from the chip carved design. Follow this lesson closely from start to finish and you’ll find success with each chip carving you complete from here on out. I call this the My Chip Carving Quick & Easy Finish Step 1 – Remove leftover...

"Carving a Tree Spirit" #2: Beard and Eyes

12-27-2011 05:28 AM by mpounders | 6 comments »

We left off with the mustache and lip sketched in. I use the knife to outline the mustache with a straight-up stop cut and then make angled cuts up to that cut, so that the mustache is higher than the beard. Then use the knife to round over the edges of the mustache. Draw the lower lip in again and then cut out a c-shaped section underneath. Make a deep shallow cut between the mustache and upper part of the lip. A shallow cut makes the mouth look slightly open, while a rounder shape gi...

06-06-2011 01:14 AM by MyChipCarving | 13 comments »

I’ve assembled the chip carved quilt with the squares that many of you sent my way. My apologies to those of you who don’t see your square in the quilt.

Now, please go to Ebay (http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=190542019969) where I’ve posted this quilt on the auction block with all funds received going to the My Chip Carving Foundation, to help tho...

"Automaton" #6: It's .........Aliveeeee!!!!!!!

01-18-2012 06:37 AM by mpounders | 21 comments »

It works! That doesn’t always happen, for me! I still have a little tweaking to do on one cam, but this is pretty much how it will operate. I’ll be able to start on the painting and finishing next, which shouldn’t be too bad. Of course, one of the things that slows me down, is all the “testing” I just have to do! So, as a thank you to those that have followed my blog, I decided to post a little preview of it in action. Thanks for eeveryone’s encourag...

Dilo’s Carving Classes (continued)

11-03-2011 10:10 PM by Dilo Marcio Fernandino | 7 comments »

Almost one year ago I posted on this blog a notice telling you that I got a woodcarving student, Mr. Luiz Flavio Rocha Gomes, who works for the Brazilian state oil company. In addition to his professional activity he is probably one of the busiest men – as well as one of the well endowed artisans – I have ever seen. At that time I posted photos of his work in progress which was expected by me to be completed soon. However, Luiz Flavio got so busy that he almost dis...

SPOON, SCOOP, COFFEE or otherwise CLUB/Challenge

11-11-2010 03:46 PM by rivergirl | 50 comments »

HEAR YE, HEAR YE!! Yes, Virginia we now have definitive proof that cavemen did enjoy scooping coffee! In fact cromagnun man (and woman) were the precursor to modern day Starbucks. In response to my recent posting of a neanderthal period coffee scoop, that was presented alongside a lovely model crafted by my L/J friend Jerry W, it was suggested that we begin an archelogical study, a challenge or showcase if you will of scoops and spoons. Because it was my shamelessly (or was it shamefacedl...
