Nice job as usual! I thought that was quill work on the mocs. Surprised to see it is cross hatching like corn husks ;-)

Well Bob, I see what you mean and I guess it could very well be quillwork – perhaps I’ll paint it and call it that – to tell you the truth, sometimes I do things out of my head and really never know what I’m doing – but thanks for the idea.

Jordan,

Your work is always amazing. We can’t decide which is more fantastic: the carving or the painting. One question we have: Are the beads carved and painted or do you just make them three-dimensional with the paint?

Oh, and another question, why don’t you post a few dozen photos of each of your projects so we have more to drool over? ;-)

Leftie – I carve 1000’s of little indentations then dab each hole 3 times with acrylic paint – on a toothpick. If the acrylic paint is the quality expensive kind, it will build in height. If not, I can use a clear top coat which does add some more dimension. I’ve never tried any other method as this has worked so well.

I’ll try to add more photos in the future, usually they are a last thought and sometimes they go out the door without ever having been photographed period!

Bob, I’ve since Googled quillwork – you just wait, it’ll be on my next ones!!! Can’t wait to try that.

Jordon: I can almost feal the soft leather from here. Those are great. Best of luck on the party and the searching for new customers.
