Got the baby all finished up! I ended up just leaving him natural, with a hand rubbed lacquer finish. That should leave the wood more of it’s natural color and won’t yellow/darken like the polyurethane I use on most of my carvings. I tried to copy the finishing technique used some by Janet Cordell. This is also from a rough out of Janet’s, but i carved it to resemble my grandson and it will be a gift for my daughter. Thanks for looking!
