I carved this dragon in a nice piece of Pine knot. Most of my wood spirit carvings are vertical and I decided to go horizontal with this one. “Puff” was quite a fun dragon to carve. All of the details, from his teeth to his eye, were carved in entirely by hand.
I carve using rotary hand tools… More specifically, a Foredom. Powered by an electric motor, a Foredom allows the carver to work his way from the rough out to the finish. I use many different burrs and sanders until I reach my desired finish.
I use just a tad bit of oil paint to accentuate my cuts…
