these dudes are christmas presents, hence their identical nature...

Those bats are super nice. Love the design work on the bottom. The mask has some cool color to it. Great work!

Hey T, what kind of wood are you doing the masks with? Love the texture/color can't wait to see them stained up.

hey tuga, those are oak. i think some of those brown spots are branches that got absorbed into the trunk of the tree. thanks for the comment, you're doing some awesome work up there!

That guy has some wild colors.
Have you put poly to it yet?
Looks like it will turn yellow or gold.

Hey will, nope haven't put any finish on it yet. I did three masks from the same branch of oak so far. I was thinking of a light color finish as well. I usually don't do poly. Maybe a clear shellac?
