I had this piece of Mayday wood from a tree I had chopped down in my yard a couple of years ago. Thought I might try and make a boot but found out that it wasn’t fully cured, hence the split at the heel. To add to my misery, I had cut the blank a bit small and the composition took on a world of it’s own. I wasn’t going to quit or throw away the wood so I kept on carving. The result was a wrinkled old boot, twisted from old age making up it’s character. I found some of my airbrush paints that I had collected for my fish carvings and slapped the paint on with reckless abandon.
That’s my boot!!!!
