Here is another of Chris Hammack’s Barfly roughouts. I really enjoy all the challenging details he puts in his work and I feel like I learn something every time I attempt one. I bought five last year at the Renegade and still have one to start! Thanks for looking!

Very good. I envy carvers. Like 3-D painting.

Hey Mike, that’s pretty neat work

What process and products did you use to colour the timber?

Great carving and finishing, Mike.

Thanks all! Robert, I use acrylic paints thinned down for painting and then brush on satin polyurethane for the finish. I blot off the excess polyurethane after a minute, with paper towels and it gives a nice matte finish.
