Finally got some time to carve, I've been busy working in the garden and yard. So I get back to my new Native American. In the these photos I finish up the eyes. I use a small veiner and gouge to outline the iris and a small glint of light in the eye. I then carve up to the stop cuts lowering the iris. Then using a wood burner I darken that area. I really like the dramatic look this creates. I also burned the bear claws. Still have some clean up to do and then decide on a finish.
