Carved Basswood and Acrylic Paint
Here are a couple of views of my latest side project. This carved figurine was originally intended to be part of a chess set (this would be a bishop) but carving wood in 3-D didn’t turn out to be as easy as I thought it would be. Although now that I have painted this guy, I can imagine an entire set would be quite nice. On it’s own it looks like a bit of wall decoration from a cheap seafood restaurant. All it needs is some netting and a plastic crab.
