"Carving Elf Ornamnents",is a spinoff of,"Carving Santa Ornaments" The carving maintains its basic form by utilizing the same triangular shape blank, while still hinging on the pierced, and full relief carving styles. Carving instruction begins with roughing out and establishing proportion in the basswood blank. Then it's on to isolating the facial features, which includes the mouth, lips, chin, jaw line,eye mounds, and ears. Also emphasized and covered in full detail,is laying out the mound for the mouth, the essential basic foundation neccessary for portraying correctly detailed facial expressions in this area of the face. Applying a natural type finish is also demonstrated step by step, and a special product is discussed which will reveal how to convey more realism in the eyes of your carvings.
