Using a large piece of Basswood, I chose to create a two thread work boot showing waves, wrinkles, and texture detail. Then after sanding I applied several coats of brown, red and green to come up with the colour shown, The thread detail was applied after the lacquer coats so that the thread simulation came with a hint of red.
ps My book, Power Carving Boots & Shoes was released on August 28 and should be available in the usual outlets very soon. I carry a supply of my book and would be willing to sell to any one interested and I will throw in my autograph to boot. You can reach me at my email address for details.
