I say with package as well, you can always remove it in wood as easily as you did in clay. Nice design, I really like the turtle shell on his head, and the way it carved out. Hope to see you Saturday!

Morning,

Thought I would post some of the progress on that clay sketch for the “Buzzy” log. It’s been a while, and I’m still not done with it….work related crap has kept me on my toes in a different direction for a minute. The next sketch I do for a log will be done with oil clay instead of the regular clay…it’s been a pain in the ass keeping him wet while I’ve had to do this other junk. I have a brace on the back side of this sketch, from his butt to his feet, that I’m not planning to have in the final wood carving. I think I’ll make him standing on a pile of sculls?….anyway, this is all I got’s to show for right now, sorry. He does have package if you couldn’t see that from the pictures.

Hey All,

Sorry, I have been doing clay mug stuff lately for the SD Choppers, and it's taking me away from wood carving for a minute so I haven't been able to post on this thread. Still, I've been talking about the "Bird" since I joined TC on this thread.....so, without any further ado...please let me introduce the "Bird"....This little fellow has just stole my heart.

I'm usually very indifferent to babies, but oh my gosh. What a little sweetie! He's beautiful, Rick. Congratulations.

By the way, I've decided to start calling you Grampy.

Congrats Grampy! Hey that 3rd pic with his tounge sticking out at you, a glimpse of things to come (watch out during feeding times, the ones with active tounges are the most dangerous!!!). But now I gotta ask, (being the Birdman...) I didn't see any wings on the lil fella, a little halo...yup, but no wings?

I've been so busy fooling in clay lately that I haven't carved in a while, however, I was able to knock out this little wall hanger out at the Oasis which sold at the auction on Sunday....If whomever brought this is out there...let it dry, and slap some spar varnish on it. I think it was was about 2.5 - 3 foot something?
