Great looking Santa Bruce, nice paint job. You should post these under NEW PROJECT and more people will see them and hopefully comment. Keep the carvings coming.

He’s really cute and Christmas is going to be here before we know it. Nice work.

Nice carving. Why would you not seal the beard?

Nice carving. In the off-season you could say he’s Obewan Kinobe.

Thanks for the compliment,I didn’t seal the beard because I use a chalky finish paint, makes the beard more like real hair Bruce
