Caricature Carving This caricature is made from a 2" x 2" x 6" piece of basswood, but the pattern can be adjusted to fit any piece of wood.This is a photo-based project, without lengthy explanations.Under each of the photos, the required action(s) are described.
Study the pictures carefully, as they each provide a lot of information.Before getting started, here are some general points to keep in mind: This project gives you practice for using the two-handed knife carving technique.
However, there will be times when you can use a different technique.Don't try to remove too much wood with one slice.Start at one end of the area that you're carving and work your way back in steps.This will help you avoid removing a large chip unexpectedly.
