Carvin The Tiny Santa!
I have decided that I had better put something up on the blog. Anything! So I decided to carve a tiny Santa head. A real quick and "dirty" one. The carving part of this tiny one took about 4 minutes. Hey I said quick and dirty! Really if I took a few more minutes it'd be a lot cleaner. But when viewed in ones hand this little fella looks clean.
d. Carve the eye areas next. Cut and remove a wedge from each side of the nose. The three sides of the wedge are the side of the nose, top of the eye area, and top of the cheek.
e. Carve the top and the bottom of Santa's mustache. This starts with curved stop cuts that define the top and bottom of the mustache.
f. Define the bottom of the cheeks/top of the mustache by removing a sliver of wood at the top of the mustache. Define the bottom of the mustache by slicing up to the bottom of the mustache.
"Shoot" give it a try. I know you'll be surprised at how well you'll do.
