Little blackfoot indian ,,,, and the cone series continues....and just a bit about detail for beginners
hi folks i hope you enjoy the last project i just completed the little blackfoot indian,, one of the reasons i love doing this project was i never did an indian before,, and after 30 years i needed to do one LOL but the real truth be told,, i enjoyed the detail, and i just wanted beginners to know that you dont have to do anything difficult to attain detail the cuts i did on this project were simple and the effect was great,, so sometime simple things can be done to add to your piece ,,,, just like the deeper cuts can make a world of difference in a carving,, so dont be afraid to try the detail,, yes i used a parting too or a v tool,, ( they are the same in my book ) but you can attain the same look just using a knife ,, it will just take longer, i will say that if you use the knife only approach you will see a crisper cut,, v tool have a very small u shape, were the two angles met,, so the choice is yours,, have fun with it ,, and keep at it ,, thanks again for watching,, happy and safe carving to ya all , arleen
