Halloween 2015

If you follow along, you know I carve something for my nieces and nephews for Halloween. Had two extra to do, twin baby girls born this year. I carve something different each year. These were from 2" x 2" basswood. Painted with acrylics and sealed with a matte varnish.

Black Walnut Wood Spirit

Found this guy hiding in a walnut log. Log measures 16" long and 4" diameter. Sealed with lacquer.
