Carving Woodspirits: Beyond The Basics

Carving Woodspirits: Beyond The Basics




Product Description

From the Back Cover
Carving Woodspirits: Beyond the Basics bridges the gap between the ‘beginner’ and ‘intermediate’ woodcarver. When one first learns to carve faces, everything is done simply and with few steps, but as the beginner practices and eventually “gets it”, there is a need for expanded knowledge. There are lots of beginner books, but they don’t take the beginner through the transition to intermediate carving. This book gives an expanded way to carve a woodspirit and the reasons why the more experienced carvers may use certain techniques or tools.

Susan Hendrix, with over 25 years of woodcarving and teaching experience, takes the student beyond basic face carving instructions. This step-by-step tutorial guides the carver through carving a detailed woodspirit face on a walking stick. Each step is clearly taught through comprehensive explanations and colour photographs. Drawings and diagrams are included where words cannot convey accurately the techniques used.

  • Step-by-step instructions
  • Drawings of various facial features such as the eyes, nose and mouth
  • Diagram of facial proportions showing how to properly layout a face
  • In-depth study on how to carve realistic flowing hair
  • Detailed instructions on how to carve eyes
  • 25 years worth of carving tips and techniques
  • Skills that can be applied to both realistic and caricature faces
  • Woodspirit gallery
  • Woodspirit patterns
