Finishing up the final details. Checked the caps on the cheekcorns, curved the upper lip and hollowed the mouth, veining the leaves. After sanding and finish, I will build a box to ship it to the UK.

Back to the Green man…..jumping around finishing up the last of the actual carving, then onto a few weeks of detailing and cleanup.

The reworking of the acorns and twigs went faster than I thought! Took one day to excise the twigs, shape the acorns and checker the caps. Finish carving the twigs went smoothly as did their repositioning and gluing. Onto the ‘Jasper’ carving next. When I come back to this I will be working on the acorns and the last of the leaf areas undone on the sides of the cheeks…..

Back to the Sawcliffe Green man and on a roll. I love doing detail work, so it always seems to go by much quicker.

I began working on the very front of the forehead leaf and noticed I still did not like the shape or placement of the acorns, so I decided to take another leap into the learning experience lane.
