Randy George shares his step-by-step photos of his carving of a large Santa face.
The carving started out as half of a basswood log. George roughed out with mallet tools and finished with hand tools. The carving measures 13″ long by 7 1/2″ wide and 5″ thick. It was painted using acrylic washes and sealed with a light coat of Deft lacquer. Visit Randy George’s blog here: georgewoodcarving.
