"Carving YOUR niche!"
"The Wild Things"
Two bas-relief carvings to celebrate the real, wild world.
Ursus Arctos: Carving of mother grizzly bear in river catching dinner for her cubs in solid cherrywood. As an educational piece, the left side of the carving has life-sized tracks carved with an etched glass, raised panel giving the Latin name for the species. Carved surface is painted, "stained" with oil paints and "wet" areas are coated with a gloss spar varnish.
Raccoon: Driftwood carving of a raccoon emerging from hole in tree branch. Detail inset shows encaustic painted face. Encaustic painting is the process of using melted crayons to color the carved surface. This allows a fur texture to be applied. Whiskers are thinned toothpicks also covered with melted white crayon.
