The wings are carved on a Carvewright and the shirt was cut out with the band saw and shaped a little with the angle sander. The first coat of red looked to fake so I decided to go with a black base and sanded off most to just leave highlights in the creases and to give a clean, yet dirty look. I finished with two light coats of red. I’m not a painter but I am pleased with the fresh out of the ship’s laundry look.

The wings are about 12” wide and the shirt is approximately 16” tall x 17” wide. I key holed the back to hang.

How do you like the Carvewright?

Thanks guys.

Pete, it takes a little time to learn but I’m starting to feel more comfortable. I’m spending more time on the computer than actually making sawdust but I’m really like the fact that I can add a new twist to my projects.
