Tips for Making Your Carvings Interesting

Tips for Making Your Carvings Interesting  
1)  Research your project thoroughly and obtain as much information and as
many images as you can before you begin.
2)  Action within a carving makes it much more interesting and
will hold the attention of the viewers longer.
3)  Lots of "Detail" adds to the story that the carving is telling.
4)  Use several aids in sculpting the project prior to carving it in wood.
Stick figures made of pipe cleaners, plasticine, clay, etc help to visualize
body parts in action along with the interaction to overall composition.
