Santa 2013

Here is my first Santa for the 2013 season. Tried something different on this one, a thin wash on the fur and painted eyes. Then, several light coats of Deft lacquer and a coat of Howard's Feed 'N' Wax. I think I like the natural wood. He is carved from basswood and standing on a cherry base. Overall height 11 1/2". Comments welcome.


  1. He's beautiful! Love the eyes. They're always the hardest part for me to carve, so I tend to make mine squinting when smiling.
