Wow Therese, this is beautiful work of art. Amazing how many carved elements you managed to include, and all equally nice and well integrated into the whole.

Thanks Sheila, sorry I had a heap of trouble posting this and didn’t copy what I had previously written. I’ve painted the carved bits with a light wash of paint then actually wiped and sanded off surplus colour. Then finished off with shellac and gave the whole stick a coat of coloured wax. Just to deepen the colour a bit. I would have liked to use some of that metallic wax stuff that you got recently

I have been having trouble posting my blog in the mornings too, Theresa. Some days I have to wait five to ten minutes between photos. It is frustrating because I have so much that I need to do! I learned (the hard way) that when the first sign of trouble shows (the wheel keeps spinning) I copy the whole post so far to a word file. Then if it does get lost, at least I don’t have to start over.

On the carving and wax – yes! That metallic wax would make some nice subtle accents on stuff like this. I hope to try it soon with a little water so that it buffs a bit better. I liked it, but it dried so fast that it was a little hard to buff out. Like you, I want subtle color, not solid on some things. I know they were reworking the formula for nearly a year and they kept delaying the release date so I hope that they have it now where it works like it is supposed to. I promise to let you know as soon as I give it a go. :)

Again – beautiful work on the carving. I always admire your talents so much! :)

Beautiful carving Theresa, very lovely. I have to admit that when my wife and I first saw the small picture on the project page we both thought it was a pic of an arm or something displaying a tattoo…lol….until we read the title Meet Rose ect. Also good to see another Aussie on Lj’s, only been a member myself for just over a week. I hope to post some of my humble stuff soon….

That is gorgeous piece of work! When I first saw the thumbnails I thought “why is someone showing tattoos?”
I have an affinity for roses, carving them so delicately on round stock must have been difficult, and they turned out beautiful.

Thanks for sharing it.
