I carved this female wood spirit carving today in a piece of found wood- a Hemlock knot. Women’s soft features and delicate curves make them a tricky and time-consuming carve. I really like the way she turned out :) I really like the grain being a part of this carving and the neat shape of the knot. The tone of the skin is the natural knot color and a little brown paint. I use acrylic paints diluted to my desired shades. The natural knot color act as the highlights of the carving, the dark brown as the eye color and deeper grooves, and the highly diluted brown for shading. I carved her using rotary tools, mainly burs of various sizes. She is finished with spray lacquer.
This carving will be up for auction on Ebay, beginning tonight at 9 pm. To find all of the carvings I have for auction at any given time, go to Ebay. com and, in the search bar, type “Josh Carte”. Happy Bidding!
