|The drawing in of the nose is further refined and ready for carving|
Sunday, September 9, 2012
A head by a nose. The drawing on the nose is further revised and finally ready for carving. I won't get to the specifics of each step or what tool I used to carve the nose. For me once the nose is laid out and drawn in the way I want it to look, carving it is the easy part. After that it's a simple matter of rounding it to shape, cutting each nostril to the same shape and size and burnishing it with the woodburner. The reason for burnishing the nose is that when the final paint and finish is applied the nose has a more realistic look.
