This little Nisse is a Norwegian style flat-plane carving. I used basswood scraps that I had laying around. I drew a few lines on the wood and started carving. I used a piece of walnut for the walking staff. The basswood one I made broke rather quickly. He is screwed to wood base. I mounted him a little toward the front of the base to give the feeling of movement. I finished him with thinned acrylic s and antiqued with thinned Minwax stain. The topcoat is a matte Krylon spray finish.
