Although the carving is done it's not complete. It's time to move on to the base. In a previous post I talked some about wanting to add more realism to my carvings by having a more natural setting for the base. Since I started the carving project I have been kicking around an idea for a base. It may require a little experimentation on some scrap wood first but I hope I can pull it off.
Before I start the base I will go back and carve another polar bear head to show you my process for setting the eyes. This time I will do my best not to delete the pictures, before I can post them. In the next week I will post on the eyes and base. I hope you continue to follow along, if not I want to thank you for taking the time to so this far.
