I Chip Carved Four Plaques

07-19-2011 02:57 PM by helluvawreck | 14 comments »

The weekend before last I chip carved the following four basswood plaques (one not pictured yet). I’ve been practicing free form chip carving for about three months and these types of patterns are what I have been generally using. I’m hoping that I can soon get good enough to decorate things like wooden jewelry boxes and similar wooden items. In a leisurely 2 day weekend I can usually average about 4 plaques per weekend. I’m not where I want to be yet but I’m go...

Carved Three Carvings Saturday and Sunday

07-18-2011 05:17 PM by helluvawreck | 19 comments »

I’ve been trying to learn chip carving for about 3 months. I like to carve free form chip carvings. I’ve still not gotten to the point where I’m satisfied with my chip carvings but I can do it better than what I could three months ago. I also try to do relief carvings occasionally but I haven’t done very many. Anyways, for the first time in a good while I decided that I wanted to do a relief carving so I chose this simple flower since I’m a beginner. IR...

Carving on the Cartecay #1: - The Setting

07-07-2011 10:01 PM by helluvawreck | 13 comments »

A few weeks back my family had the opportunity to go to my brother’s cabin on the Cartecay River up in north Georgia for a four day weekend.

There is a screened in porch that stretches all the way across the back of the cabin and a stone covered patio on the bottom floor under the porch. The porch and patio have ample furnishings. On the po...

All materials were sprayed on using an airbrush. I made two trays and lined the box and trays with red velvet.Your comments and feedback are welcome!Shelley loves it :-)

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...
