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.
