almost done figure Volan de mort. Linden, 12 cm Far from ideal, but there are similarities)) any ideas for Finish trim. I’m choosing between became Danish oil (dark walnut, natural, Golden oak).

Great carving – I’m a big fan of the Harry Potter books and films. For this one maybe you should consider a stain that has a slight green tint – Voldemort was a Slytherin who spoke Parseltongue so making him look more snake-like would be appropriate.

Thanks for posting, looking forward to the finished project.

Very nice project!!!
Danish oil [dark walnut] to bring out the shadows of the face.
If your like me I have all 3 shades so darken the face and outer rob and then lighter for the inner.
Just my $.02

I agree with leaf herder – a slightly green tint to the finish would be appropriate. Excellent carving!
