Getting quite the collection of little whittles

Well, I’ve been busy whittling my little heart out over here. Really enjoying the wood carving class. Here are a bunch of things I’ve carved and painted – as you can probably see, for me, it’s all about the colour!

#sopleasedwithmyself … again

Okay, after the kitty, I did one of Nemo. Then I decided that I wouldn’t just paint them all realistic-like, but rather would kind of tattoo them both with colour and doodles! I’m pretty pleased with how they came out, being as they’re my first 3-D carvings. 😀

Here’s how they came out: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JSRtmfxuSdU&feature=youtu.be

#sopleasedwithmyself

Dropped my mother off at Tai Chi at the senior center this morning and went down the hall to the wood carving class. Whittled myself a kitty, I did! Didn’t cut myself once, either!

Flamingo print

Today I subbed at the high school for art class, one of my faves because I like to get to do the project of the day. The upper classes were making block prints by carving into wood or a thick slab of linoleum, rolling the stamp with paint, then stamping their designs. I wanted in on the action, so I grabbed a thin piece of balsam from the box, drew my design, then chiselled away at it to make my wood stamp. I was so pleased with it, I brought it home and framed it! Oh, yeah – I’m going to find another use for my flamingo stamp. I like it as-is with the paint on the wood. Too big to use as necklace, though.
