This was a project with a piece of Cherry wood scrap that just screamed BLUEGILL…
the entire piece is hand carved and polished without the use of sandpaper
my cabinet maker trainer used to say….”SANDPAPER IS FOR FOOLS THAT CAN’T SHARPEN THEIR TOOLS” THE END RESULT WAS ALOT OF SCRAPING the tips of the scales is done in gold leaf
the eyes are plexiglass polished and pupil painted rimmed with 24k gold
the finish is clear satin and of course hand rubbed hope you enjoy it
