This was kind of fun.. I was rummaging around my computer over the weekend trying to get my designs together and I found this one.. dated from 2007?! I don’t remember what I would have used it for.. or why I have it.. but at some point I rendered it, so cool.
This is the same wood as the Big Giraffes. .. same log.. what a different a part of the log makes huh.
The carving did not go quite as I had hoped it would, the slab did not cooperate that much. Oh well. I like how the carving goes right into the bark, though. I saturated the bark with CA so hopefully it will stay there.
If you like it pay attention to my Etsy shop because I think I’m going to heavily discount it. A few people have mentioned doing some carvings with laminated wood and I think this would be the PERFECT design to try it out on. So perhaps I will do that.
At any rate, I thought it was only fair to show you all some of the best I’ve done and some that don’t work out quite to plan.
