How’s everybody doing I haven’t posted or visited the site in a long time I had a long break where I became engulfed in trying to master photography. I finally got the itch to do some woodworking again and finished a project that I started long ago and knew could be great. This is a wave (actually three the last two were completed years ago) carved from a branch from a Maple tree, I used dye for the water color and paint for the foam. It took a long time to complete due to I suck at painting foam and had to do it six times which meant sanding off reapplying the dye and painting the foam it sucked but I couldn’t leave it with the foam looking stupid. The foam is still not what I had in my head but I couldn’t do it again and it’s ok for now.
Nice to be back Roger.

You may think you suck at painting foam but they look wonderful.

Roger,

We’re glad you decided to get back to the woodworking. Thanks for sharing these outstanding carvings. Your painting/dyeing is fabulous. We hope you don’t wave good-bye again any time soon!
