Wow.

Normally I would say that I have to try one of these, but I wouldn’t even know where to start.

Thanks, all, for the nice comments!

Brady:
I showed the sequence from start to end here: http://lumberjocks.com/topics/178402

I know it sounds like wise-a## remarks, but I quite literally cut away the parts that don’t look like I want the Santa to look. Just keep cutting away a little bit at a time until it looks good. If you’d like, I’ll scan in the photo I used to make the pattern and send it to you.

Wow! SHarp detail and great painting, Claude. One of the best Santas I’ve ever seen!
