As I am posting this, it is 93 degrees outside, too hot for this early in the summer.
Maybe this carving will help us feel a little cooler, only six months 'til Christmas. :)
Finally got a chance to finish Santa. He is painted with acrylics thinned with water, then sealed with Deft lacquer. I applied a coat of Howard Feed 'N Wax as the final finish. He measures 12" long, 7 1/2" wide and 4 1/2" thick. I think he turned out pretty good. What do you think?
