This is my current project that I just finished last night.
It is a long stemmed rose carved out of basswood.
It was carved to scale and has all the veined and thorns carved in as well. The rose and septal petals are carved from one piece of wood and the stem and leaves are carved separately from another piece of basswood.
The petals and leaves are so thin that you can see light through them when they are held up to the light.
I have about 30 – 40 hours into it total including painting.
The rose itself was painted via airbrush in order to get all the way down in between the petals. It was my first time using an airbrush.
Thanks for looking.
Just an update.
This carving took both 3rd Place at the 2011 Minnesota State Fair and First Place Premium Blue Ribbon at the 2011 Washington County Fair in Minnesota.
