Well, After much thought and input from everyone. I decided to make 2 of these boards into Angel wings,
My wife and I have an couple that are very special to us and they collect Angels. So this is going to be a present for them.
Here is a picture of the drawing I have so far.
The overall size will be about 12 inches square. The Angel will be about 8 inches tall.
Here is a picture of the woods I will be useing.
The wings are the white oak crotch that I started this post with.
The hair will be blood wood.
The robe will be Poplar. I found a piece that veries from tan to very light green to a pale lavender.
Still have not decided on a wood for the face. Everything I have seems to darken considerably when I test it with mineral spirits. I would realy like the face to be a white to a light pink. Any suggestions?
Have re-sawed all boards to 1/8 inch thick, and book matched the background and robe.
Will be insetting a piece of brass for the halo.
Thank you all for looking.
Please leave all comments and suggestions.
Will continue as I go.
