Relief Carving Wood Spirits: A Step-By-Step Guide for Releasing Faces in Wood (Woodcarving Illustrated Books)by Lora Irish
Synopses & Reviews
From transferring the carving pattern to preparing the wood and evaluating the various levels of depth, every cut of the carving process is carefully illustrated and explained in this beginner's guide. Carvers will learn which tools are best for which cuts and why; how to create realistic eyes, noses, and other facial features; and how to add texture to their projects. Ten additional projects await once the first whimsical tree spirit is completed, each of which includes three styles of patterns: an outline for cutting the basic shape, a depth pattern indicating the levels of relief, and a shaded pattern indicating texture and shadow.
