I picked up the WCI #58 Issue and found Floyd Rhadigan’s article on carving a caricature elephant.

Being new to carving this was a perfect project for me to work on. I carved the smaller egg first and liked it so much and having a lathe I turned out an ostrich egg to carve out Ellie.

My daughter now wants a pink elephant.

The hen egg was turned out of jelutong and the osterich egg out of basswood. Both are painted with acrylics.

New to carving? Great for being new! They can only get even better, right?
